If you've enjoyed using the new colour themes on the Ouch magazine site. You can now having a similar experience when reading your email. If you are a Gmail user, that is.
They have just introduced a variety of stylish themes you can use to change the look of your mail. Whilst some are purely cosmetic like the Graffiti theme. Others are optimised for those with visual impairments, like Contrast Black, which is just like the Ouch Hi-Viz option. As with Ouch, when you return to the site it will also remember your chosen theme.

To try them out:
- Log-in to your Gmail account
- Click on the Settings link on the top right of the page
- Click on Themes
- Take your pick from the themes on offer

You can read more and see examples on the official Gmail blog. If your webmail provider offers something similar, we'd love to hear about it in the Comments.
