hoping this can be an updated or part 2 of macOS Mail: How to remove background color of a message in message list?
using Ventura 13.3 and looking for a way to reset the color of messages that i added a color to.
note: i'm NOT referring to the body background or text of an email.
when viewing an Inbox/folder list of messages, i started adding colors (both background and text color) for items that a simple Flag would not suffice.
this is done by selecting a message(s) and going to the Format menu & choosing the Show Colors option. or if you have put Colors in your toolbar. or if you've created a Rule to add colors to messages.
i've just discovered that there is NO way (that i've found) to revert/undo/reset/remove these colors!!!
the only semi-solution (which isn't really a solution) is to reselect the message(s) and choose a color that closely matches the background of the list/message viewer. it's been said that those who use LIGHT MODE should choose Snow and those who use DARK MODE should choose Licorice.
BUT, at least to my eyes & screens, these do not fully match. plus, for me using Dark mode, choosing a dark color for some reason hides/removes the faint line between messages.
so i'm putting this out there again, hoping somebody's found a way to do this. perhaps an Automator service or Applescript? or a third party app/plugin?
it would be nice to be able to continue using colors, but there needs to be a (simple/quick) way to remove the colors individually when needed.
