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!

Very interesting add-on. However, wilth my TB3.0 on Ubuntu 10.04 it is very heavy and my system becomes so slow... It takes more than 2 seconds to close a message window... What a pity!

Bright, clear and customisable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

brilliant and clear! any chance of an update to make it compatible with the current version of Thunderbird?
It is so easy to give each account a different colour, help reduces confusion if you run several email accounts, and most of all in doing this it is very easily customised.
You can customise the colours to appear in each window or view separately and the fonts as well. Being able to choose exact shades make it easy to configure to your own taste. Since I've been using it, my time spent looking for emails and checking accounts has been reduced. I would recommend this to anyone. it does not interfere with the stablility of thunderbird in any way.

Not Compatible With 3.1 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this program because I can change the colors of practically anything. Now that I have upgraded to thunderbird 3.1.1 I am sad that I can't use it anymore. My thunderbird looks so dull now! Please come out with a compatible version!

Excellent add-on, the best there is as far as I know at the moment to provide colour-coding on multiple accounts.

All my thanks go to DW-dev.

Awesome and useful addon if you have more that one account and use intelligent folders.

Only one bad design detail. It don't takes the default font system. At least in gnome, more detail (gnome 2.30, font-family: Droid sans, ubuntu 10.04)

Good job

Thanks for a great extension!

I have one small issue. I move all my mail, from two different accounts, into Local Folders. Each account has a single identity. I have selected "Colour based on Message Header Account" in the "Thread Pane" tab but this does not seem to work - messages subject lines are not coloured.

Not what I'd hoped Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Didn't do what I hoped it would. : (

Can you possibly morph it into a new app that colours individual folders instead of just individual accounts? That would be a lot more useful for those of us who only have one account, but want to differentiate folders so we can spot them easily. Can you do it?

Looks good, but it's missing the ability to set different backgrounds for different identities under the same account. Changing the text color is great, but seems to me that it would be confusing if you use colored tags.

Slows down the deletion of mails & RSS feeds dremendously (when pressing the DEL-key repeatedly - lets say 20 times - in order to delete 20 rss feeds from the thread pane).
After deactivating the Add-On, everything works normal/fast again.

What I also found out is, that if you add a Lable to a specific e-mail (e. g label "private"), then normally after selecting that e-mail in the treadpane its whole line is highlighted with the color of its label (e. g. red).
However with account colors installed, the labled e-mail (line) in the thread pane is always blue when selected (as any other e-mail).

Please have a look at the Thunderbird error console. There are hundrets of entries for "account colors". This might also be the reason why account colors is sometimes not working correctly after a restart of Thunderbird, so that the Add-On's settings must be set again.
Example:
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "'[JavaScript Error: "too much recursion" {file: "chrome://accountcolors/content/ac-3panewindow.js" line: 371}]' when calling method: [nsIMsgCustomColumnHandler::getRowProperties]" nsresult: "0x80570021 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JAVASCRIPT_ERROR_WITH_DETAILS)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://accountcolors/content/ac-3panewindow.js :: anonymous :: line 371" data: yes]

More Information Please

This is probably caused by interaction with another add-on that uses the custom column handler interface. Please can you tell me which other add-ons you are using.
