THE REASON FOR THIS SITE
To be totally clear there is no commercial connection or otherwise between eM Client and Compucall and or its associated companies. I sold the holding Company and retained outright control of the Domains so as an enthusiastic user of eMC I like to help if I can.
This site will assist users of eM Client E-Mail to create or modify Themes Plus a small selection of other stuff that is hidden in full view if you look Since 2003 neither Compucall Solutions or Maxadmin DevOps have maintained public sites to promote or advertise their business activities though both do have private sites for the exclusive use of client companies and subsidiary companies.
WHY YOU MIGHT WANT eM CLIENT IN THE ERA OF WEBMAIL
Why do I need to use a local email client?
This is a reasonable question that I suspect some people might ask themselves.....
"Who uses a local email client in 2023, doesn't everybody use webmail these days?" To be honest, yes, a lot of us do, including the Compucall support desk who use it as a diagnostic tool.
However if you are using a free web mail service - such as AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo or one of several others - you are always running the risk of it getting deleted. Free users don't have any comeback, and there are lots of sad stories out there of people losing their accounts.
Losing your email account can be quite a serious problem, and it can mean losing access to lots of other services which authenticate you by means of your email address. Even if you don't use it to read and write your emails, keeping a local email client on your computer - or computers - means that you can keep a full local backup of whatever is in your webmail account, so even if it gets deleted, you don't lose all your mail. Many Email Clients run on multiple platforms, you name it. These days, eM Client integrates pretty well with most webmail services - once set up it will automatically connect to your account without you needing to enter server details, and it won't just pick up your email, it will also pick up your calendar, and your address book. So, as paradoxical as it might sound, it may be worth running a local copy of eM Client even if you don't actually use it very often. It will just sit there in the background quietly keeping a local copy of all your messages that are somewhere out there in the cloud.

This color chart may help you in locating & changing particular elements in the XML code
The order of the displayed colors does not relate to the order of use in the theme

You should remember that the actual COLOR & HUE displayed will vary dependant upon:
- The capability of your computer display and graphics card
