your suggestion did not work, the message test background is green and only goes is the background colour is blue !!!

Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 3 years ago.
See here blue means it is an iMessage, green means it is an SMS... it totally depends on the recipient. Is the recipient using an iPhone phone number or is it an iMessage to a computer or other device?
Expert:  Mike the Mac Medic replied 3 years ago.
If you select the littel "!" next to the failed message it should ask if you want to send as Text Message or other method which may go through
