New at Posteo: Many Colors and Dark Mode
Created on 20. April 2023, 16:45 | Category: Info
Dear Posteo customers,
Starting today, we will be gradually releasing new features for you: Just in time for the beginning of spring we are bringing some color to your mailbox – we are now offering our user interface in 10 new variants. Additional updates include dark mode as well as two levels of contrast.
Regardless if you prefer yellow, pink, red or neutral colors like beige, brown or blue: From now on, the color of the user interface can be adjusted in the settings. The selected color will be applied to all areas, such as the calendar, notes, the attachment browser or in the Posteo web app.
Each Color in Two Contrast Levels
It is also new that all color variations are now available in two contrast levels. If you regularly work several hours in front of a screen, a color and contrast selection tailored to their own needs can be much more pleasant. Please try it out!
The contrast toggle switch can be found in the settings directly above the color selection.
Another update: Starting now, you can activate dark mode. The background will then be displayed darkened and the text brightened – in the color you have selected. dark mode is especially useful for reading emails in darker settings. Many people also consider this more pleasant on the eyes in general.
Additionally, you have the option to automatically control Light and dark mode based on your operating system settings: The Posteo interface will then adapt accordingly – also on smartphones using the web app.
There is a toggle switch for dark mode and auto dark mode directly above the color selection.
We will gradually release all new features over the next few weeks. As soon as they have been released for your account, you will find the new options in Preferences via “User Interface”. These features are available free of charge without any further action on your part.
