My outgoing e-mail has adopted my site theme which I have just discovered causes problems in some email clients ie the body text in not visible due to the background colour.
 
I have made the changes as per post 99171​ ​which has resolved the immediate problem but the text is contained an un-padded box with a thick border which is undesirable.

I have created a new theme and would like to know if it's possible (and how to) use this exclusively for outgoing e-mails so that I can fine-tune it without affecting my site.
​Any​ ​pointers would be much appreciated.

I'd advise just hacking away at MAIL.tpl more. Remove the divs we have in there, add more inline styles. Don't think of it as applying a theme, think of it about being specific how that mail template should look disregarding whatever CSS ocPortal might normally inject via it's theme.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
