Outlook background

Hello everyone.
About a week ago I found that my email reading pane has aquired a light grey background, it had always been white previously. Can anyone tell me how to correct this please?
Have a nice day.

Hi Golden. That must be the all time record for a speedy reply. Thank you.
I should have mentioned, I am still using Outlook 2003.
Have a nice day.

Hi Robert,

We aim to please. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of Outlook 2003, but I found this useful link:

Change Outlook 2003 color scheme in Vista and 7 | MSOutlook.info

Let us know if it works.

Regards,
Golden

No worries Robert. Did you get the colour sorted out?

Hi Golden. Yes I did. I went to Internet Options, colors and checked the 'Use Windows Colors' box. That fixed it.
Thank you for your support.
