    Unfortunately, there is no option to set the background color of the body content of the email. The only solution I could think of is modify the background color of your HTML table by opening the email's HTML source, then set a background color in it.

    Here is how to do it:

    1) Edit your email alert settings and open the HTML source of your email body

    2) Once the window is open, insert the height attribute (height="your preferred numeric height"), then change the hex value of the bgcolor attribute to your preferred color.

    3) Once done, just press OK and click the Save button
