XF 1.2 Change background color of message body

Where do I change the color of the background of where a user types in the body
of a message. Right now it's the same as the surrounding background color and it blends in to much.

Thank you
Thanks, It does change the reply area body, BUT it also changes the main message background also.
I will assume that there is not a separate setting for Message body background and reply body background then!
Than you

You mean first post of a thread is one background and any subsequent posts are a different color? No, but this could be accomplished via template edits and some conditionals.
I tried changing it in the rich text editor, and I also still have the problem of the message background being the same color as the reply box. I would like to change the color of the reply box so it is visually separate from the page background.
