Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found two lines in this add-on that causes most of content of the status bar of Thunderbird 5 to vanish.
The lines
document.getElementById("folderTree").addEventListener("select",acThreadPane,false);
and
document.getElementById("tabmail").addEventListener("load",acMessagePane,true);
in ac-3panewindow.js seem to be responsible for this incompatibility. Removing these lines reduces the functionality of this add-on, but different accounts in the folder pane remain coloured and the status bar is completely visible.
I hope that there will be patched version soon. This add-on is very useful.

Needs an update Rated 2 out of 5 stars

You can still make it work in Thunderbird 5 as previous comments have stated, but it causes a bug in the status bar at the bottom, where everything vashes, except number of messages unread & total - even with all other addons disabled. Have to disable it until there's an update as I need my status bar...

Darker Colors Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good for differentiating various accounts. Needs ability to select darker colors. Select color possibly have slider gadget to lighten/darken selected color.

Very good addon. Focus on which account you are using. (color in folder list makes it easier to identify accounts).
Have an issue with it as (on Thunderbird/Shredder 3.3a4 on windows) the status bar text disappears. Hovering a link on a email does not show the result in the status bar (also folder info from the Nostalgy addon does not show).
From the review of HekMek, (where he mentions no text on hovering buttons) this might not be just due to Shredder.

Good work nonetheless

Really good AddOn, but I detected a mistake:

As you can see in the three pictures, there is no color in my gmx.com account although it should be marked green. It works with all other accounts except that one. Could you fix that please? :)

+ The good part:
As for me, the add-on works and is helps making sure which account you use.
+ The bad part:
You only get to choose background colours from a palette of fade colours and for me it was difficult to find a few which were both distinguishable and not confusing (no, I'm not colour-blind but orange and red would look too alarming for me, leaves green-ish and blue-ish).
+ The really bad part:
The add-on makes Thunderbird display "deactivated" text in the background colour (i.e. invisible), this can be mitigated _partly_ by forcing the use of the set-up foreground colour. This means when you read an email, you will no longer see the sender, subject etc. in the thread pane. Also, button texts disappear when you hover with the mouse pointer. This took all the fun out of using the add-on for me.
Note: I am using Linux, the issue(s) may be plattform-specific-

It seems I can't color "Local folders" account - which I would like to use for coloring my own messages... so badly needed function.

Feature Doesn't Work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The developer does not seem interested in doing this thing right. This add-on went through several initial changes before it worked as intended. Now the option named "Darker Selector Bar" can not be turned off.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3).  This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.

More information please

The option 'Darker Select Bar' appears on two options tabs for Folder Pane and Thread Pane. Testing with Thunderbird 3.1.4 & 3.1.6 indicates that both options work correctly and can be turned on and off. Which option does not work correctly for you (Folder Pane or Thread Pane)? Is the problem affected by any of the other options you have selected? Please can you provide more information? (preferably by e-mail to dw-dev@gmx.com).

Interested in expanding this???? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would you be interested in creating a similar add-on for coloring the backgrounds, text, etc based on TAGS???? It would really be helpful for those of us who need a good way to make certain tagged emails stand out... and tags (colored text) just doesn't cut it...

good extension but.... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hi had a problem with the global search message function.
after installed the "account colors" extension was impossible to open a message resulted from a global search. thunderbird freezes (after double click on a message in the results window) and a force quit was needed. (thunderbird 3.1.4, account colors 3.3, OS X 10.6.4)

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this extension! A must have if you have more than one email account and/or use the Unified Folders view.

My only suggestion would be to have a convenient default for some settings. It was confusing when nothing happened after choosing a background color on all my accounts, then to find out I had to mess with the "Color ... Background" checkboxes in the options in order for it to be applied.

I am happy to see it updated. I love this extension. I have noticed that the header background does not get colored when compacted using CompactHeader. Other than that this is a must have extension.

Nice job! Keep working on it! Thank you!

Account Change on New Message? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I discovered this today, and with 17 accounts in TB, this makes life SO much easier! I can now easily distinguish accounts, and not worry that I'm sending something from the wrong email address! One thing this seems to strip from the basic TB (I'm using 3.1.3 on a Mac) is account name becoming different color when there are new messages. I keep accounts collapsed unless I'm using that folder, and now when there's new mail, I have to open each mail account to find the new messages. Thank you for considering this, and if I'm missing a check box somewhere, please tell me which one it is, since I think I tried every combination!

Edited to add: Found work around!! I unclicked "color account font" and now the account changes color with new email.

Account Colors 3.3 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The font color now works. The background colors do NOT work. Something is better then nothing.
Hoping the next version will get it right.

clear addon to separate e-mail accounts Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have tried this addon on former versions of TB. It's just THE addon we needm not to mix up between e-mail accounts.
I'm really looking forward to installing the compatible version to TB 3.1.2
Thanks a lot for the work done!
