    Not to be critical, but how about no HTML in email instead? That will always work according to the client preferences

    1. 3

      I agree, let the content be the king. I do believe, though, that minimalistic layout is still a great fit for transactional emails, like SSO email with a big juicy button to click on.

      I always read my e-mail in dark mode. Because my terminal has a dark background and I use mutt. Please don’t use HTML e-mail that destroys this well-configured experience.

        Outlook was the only email client that supported this before Apple Mail.

        iirc, thunderbird has supported this feature for a while, too.

          The new big trend in tech, dark mode

          How is this new? Haven’t dark themes been a thing for over 20-30 years?

            It doesn’t have to be a new thing to be a new trend. Fashion is famously cyclic too.

            1. 1

              That’s plausible. I don’t see it as a trend, rather something that the tech overlords have permitted their users to enable, but if you re-interpret this as a kind of “fashion”-thing, it kind of makes sense?

              1. 2

                FWIW I think tech is so trend driven it hurts.

            2. 2

              Slack and iOS offering it apparently make it “new”

              1. 1

                Yeah but you used to have to mess around with widget styles or custom CSS overrides. IOS and android now have a switch that changes styling for all system apps.

                1. 1

                  I was just saying that the concept doesn’t seem new. Especially on platforms with themes.
