F-Verizon and this STUPID update... The posts keep rolling on with the issues everyone is having... not just here but on other Droid forums as well... Verizon and Motorola screwed the pooch on this one...
Well it's not a Verizon issue. It appears to be a Droid issue (specifically my Droid 4) because I had a Pantech Marauder with ICS and the email was not black background with white type. It was plain old ordinary grey/black type on a white background. So there is something that Google has done in the Droid version. Stupid move because everyone knows - especially screen design engineers - that white type/dark color background is the worst combination for your eyes on a computer-type screen and even in print. So I loved the Pantech Marauder but the camera didn't have a flash so now I don't know what to do. Is there maybe a 3rd party email app that would be usable?

No such Enable Inverted Mode exists in Accessibility on a Droid 4 and even if it did ... this only enables it when what we all want to do is disable it.
Months later and yes, this is not just a Verizon issue. I'm on the "WIND Mobile" network in Canada.
My device is Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and came with this same dark background email app.
I agree, STUPID STUPID STUPID to take away a person's PAID FOR right to choose what is best for themselves.
I use Yahoo, but the Yahoo app, while pretty good, just doesn't notify as well as this app does. So I just run this app in the background for the beeps and vibration, then use the Yahoo app to check mail.... much better screen layout... easy on the eyes.
I think this is an issue with all "Droid" phones from Verizon. My Father in Laws Bionic changed to this with the ICS update, my Brother in Laws RAZR Maxx did the same. It doesn't bother me, but it did my Father in Law. It is white background on my N10 Tablet & my Fianc's Kindle Fire HD.
