How do you highlight text (i.e., format the background color for a portion of text) in a mail msg? The 'background color' option changes the background of the entire msg(!).

That option is not available from the formatting toolbar. Note that the background color selection dialogue is titled "Page background color."

Is the option available anywhere in the product?

As far as I am aware that function is not available in either SeaMonkey or Thunderbird email clients.

That's sad. Even Yahoo! mail has highlight.

Thanks.

A work around: Write your message in your favourite word processor like Libre Office. Highlight it there and then copy the text. Now paste it into your Thunderbird message.

We can also hope that add-on developer André Rodier gets his "Highlighter" add-on working again.

Thanks but this "SEAMONKEY" thread died in 2018.

Locking due to old age.
