Bug Description

I am currently on Freya and using Evolution for my email, contacts and calendaring needs. The background in the email preview pane and in the email composing window is black which makes reading/composing emails a hassle. So far I've managed to work around the issue in the email preview pane by adding

GtkWindow {
  color: @theme_fg_color;
  background-color: @theme_bg_color;
GtkPaned {
  color: @theme_fg_color;
  background-color: @theme_bg_color;

to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css. This is taken from the fix for this Ubuntu bug: If anyone knows how to change the background in the compose window please share!

I know that GNOME apps are a really really low priority but I also did notice a section for GNOME in /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css, which I guess would be the place to implement a proper fix. Hope this helps someone!
