Monitor pre-sets are often inaccuarate. And they change with the age of the monitor to boot. My monitor spec says it's set to 7500k but it is really at 5000k. If I set it to 5000k in adobe gamma, then it comes out at 2500k or something like that. And that looks very yellow indeed. I guess one really needs a puck and calibration software to really get this right or you're just guessing. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
