background feeds into text boxes? only on forwarded emails not originals

Frequent Participant

so the email is all readable, with dark blue background not interfering with reading text boxes. i forward and all is dark blue; text not readable???

not always happening?  why?



Hello @AnnS,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I do apologize for the experience you are having with forwarded emails. Unfortunately, we can't control what happens when an email is sent outside of Constant Contact as a forward. I will definitely submit your feedback on this though! Thanks.
