Nice to see it updated. Very useful extension, should be part of TB as standard

Good work on the update, compatible now with the add-ons

Oh Dear Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Something's wrong with the latest update for me anyway.

I'm not impressed that the update caused all my account colours to disappear. even worse, it conflicts with 2 add-ons I'm using: "Show InOut 0.602" and "Address Book Display Name 0.2.2a (experimental)". Both modify the thread pane to show fields from the address book rather than the default 'To' 'From' fields. Both worked prior to the update. After the update, neither extension displays any entry for the sender's details, although the default fields work. No facility to go back to the previous version so this extension is disabled until it's fixed. I hope that's soon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0). 

Conflicts & Migration

Release 3.1 fixes these problems. The conflicts with "Show InOut 0.602" and "Address Book Display Name 0.2.2a" have been resolved. The color settings are now automatically migrated from Release 2.0 and Release 3.0 (To do this: Install Release 3.1, open Options dialog, click OK to complete migration).

Has potential, but results a bit hit or miss.

Colours are weak/pastel and in the selection box are all so weak they appear almost the same.

Zebra stripes won't disappear in Thread window, and in compose window, FROM an TO boxes are not coloured.

What I expected/wish for is to be able to have Folder, Thread and Message windows, and the Compose window and the Text area, to have the same background colour depending on the account.

I use Border Color extension to help ensure I send from the correct account but it seems to conflict with this, but it is much better at showing the account being used in the compose stage

Problems being Addressed

Background colors are intentionally weak/pastel. Release 3.0 will fix zebra stripes in thread pane and from/to coloring in compose window; and will provide options for coloring and styling messages in thread pane; and will provide much clearer indication of the identity/account that the message will be sent from.
