What to Do If A New Email Message Is Completely Black

Apple has posted a Knowledge Base article detailing a problem with generating Mail messages after installing Safari 5 on a system running the latest version of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard. When you start an email message in Mail using some other program to get the ball rolling, the new message may have black text on a black background, rendering it unreadable.

[This problem was fixed in Safari 5.1. —Tonya 27-Oct-2010]

For full information see Apple’s article about the problem.
