    I am a long time Windows phone and iPhone user, and the gigantic screen on the Note 2 convinced me to make the switch. I am new to android and am happy with the phone so far except that it's clunky for email compared to my Windows Phone. :(

    One thing I find very annoying is that messages marked as "Read" are set to a grey background with grey text. I am a heavy email user and this irritates me. Is there a way to change this? I have gone through all the settings and have not found a setting for this.

    Every other email client in the world uses bold text for unread emails, then they are no longer bold after marked as read. The grey-on-grey is hard on the eyes and needs to be changed.

    any ideas?

    Welcome brandoson!
    Are you talking about the gmail messages or another email app?
    I am not sure you can or not, as I am not familiar with the Note 2
    But here is a link for your device and perhaps some others there have had, or can help you with your question:

    Unless there are themes available for it?

    But thanks for joining:D
    Sorry I don't have a more definitive answer for you.

    I use Exchange email and the default mail app.

    Thanks for the link. I'll take a look around.

    You should try using the "gmail" app if it was already pre loaded onto your note 2.

    Welcome to AF! Hope you enjoy your stay here. :cool:
