I am using Google Apps free version. In the Gmail, I don't have themes. How can I use themes?

I followed the following address


as seen in this link but no luck.

Am I out of themes, because I am a free user?


I do not see the "Themes" in the "Mail Settings". I have checked with two Google Apps domain; both do not have Themes. Am I the only one? How may I complain?

In Gmail click on Mail Setting and then Themes. You can choose from some pre-created one or create your own.


Try this link on which you have a button (Explore themes) to access the Themes settings under gmail (make sure you're logged in to gmail): http://www.google.com/support/bin/static.py?page=guide.cs&guide=28576&answer=180095

Go to your mailbox, click the Gear icon in the upper-righthand corner, and select mail settings. From there, select Themes. I too have the free version and I can get to the themes just fine.
