I have an issue where all my emails cannot be read unless I select

I have not found anything in preferences to fix this.

That's a desktop theme issue - it's displaying white text on a white

Evolution follows the desktop theme, there's no setting in Evolution
over-ride that - try changing to one of the standard themes such as

I have had a similar issue, I was using the Adwaita-dark controls
(which seems to affect the back and fore colours of the Evo mail
message) and after receiving an update to my NVidia graphics driver and
having rebooted after that update, suddenly the reversed body text area
of Evo changed so that emails that normally had white background and
black text now have white background and pale grey text making it very
difficult to see. Prior to the NVidia graphics driver update all emails
that had white backgrounds had black text not pale grey. Yet others
(which presumably didn't declare whether their background was white and
their text black), would appear as black background with the pale grey
text and again this was OK because it fitted in with my desire to have
everything pale text on a black background.  I think it may be people
who use MS Outlook and have set their background colurs and for some
reason whatever it is in Gnome that handles this does not change the
background to black, but does make the text pale grey??

Is there a setting somewhere that you can set to force all backrounds
to black and text white or pale grey?
