Override Outlook Dark Mode

Is there any way to override the outlook dark mode so my emails don't turn black? I can't make every logo a PNG/transparent background as some of the logos have black lettering. I also can't change the background color to "white" or #FFFFFF - the code in outlook changes it to black automatically. Any ideas?

Re: Override Outlook Dark Mode

Hi @GeorgiaB07 


I can understand how important it is for your email to display properly! I apologize you're having this experience with your Outlook Dark Mode. As you stated, Outlook alters colors in the email for dark mode and, like he said, ignoring the actual colors of the email. I apologize the only way around this would to insert your email as screenshots in your template rather than text. Dark mode doesn't change the colors of images, so having these screenshots will allow it display properly.
