No, I am talking about when you open your inbox on the left, your list of
incoming emails is shown on the right. When you hold your mouse one, it gets
highlighted. You haven't opened the mail yet. They want that highlight to be
darker or brighter so they can read the Sender, Subject, etc. easier. When
they have a bunch of mail it is easier to go thru to see which they feel
they want to open now before others.
Same thing with Sent Mail and Old Mail. They want the highlight to be darker
or brighter. I never heard of you being able to do that some how and is why
