It cannot set bg-colors of html-mails I write, right?
I would like to (isnt that the most important color?).
Setting the font family in selfwritten html-mails by account (or identity) woud be nice too.

edit: Its all about finding the right plugin by name or description...
plugin "stationary" does the job I needed. Hard to find because its silly name for people that do not use outlook. Who uses outlook? [shaking head]

This is not what Account Colors is intended to do ....

The main point of Account Colors is to allow the account owner to identify which account/identity their received and sent e-mails belong to, and when composing e-mails to know which account/identity they are being sent from. This can be done quite effectively by color coding the font/background colors in the Thunderbird user interface, without changing the styling of e-mail contents.

When composing e-mails, the background colors and font families in HTML e-mails are really for the benefit of the recipients, not for the account owner (sender). The approach taken in Accounts Colors is to color code the e-mail header, which should be sufficient to remind the sender which account the e-mail will be sent from.

Was very nice, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi, today i update TB, and now dont see all Accounts in the Options?! Have ca. 60-70 Accounts. What is the matter?!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0). 

How many identities can you see?

How many identities can you see in the 'Account/Identity Colors' options tab of the 'Account Colors Options' dialog?

At present, Account Colors allows a maximum of 60 accounts to be colored.

If you need this limit increased, please email: dw-dev@gmx.com

6.10 disables Color Folders 1.1. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello,everything is in the title.Will you check what can be done to restore Colors Folder's functions ?Thanks


I dunno how to answer, hence I'm updating this review.
I really enjoyed finding your feedback. 6.11 works fine on my computer now. Thanks a lot for your diligence.

Really useful add-on. But it doesn't work properly with "Enhanced Priority Display" (or vice versa). Could you add a new option for task panel about priority messages? That would be so nice! Just a way to highlight priority emails... and no need for "Enhanced Priority Display"... :-)

Superbe addon a "must have" (But now it does not work with Acc Colors update) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is a Superbe addon. I used it together with Account Colors, but since the last AC update (v 6.10) it does not work. The folders remain in default TB colors. Is it possible to fix this? (it worked before) For anyone who wonders why one needs both, Account Colors is great for folder fonts in folder pane and Message Pane and is great in Compose pane. Account colors is great for the folders itself.

I can only confirm that after update to ver. 6.6 I cannot see any options on Account/Identity Colors tab in addon-options window - only blank tab under it`s name.
In version 6.5 everything was OK.
Thunderbird 17.0.4.
Version 6.6 should have been fixed as soon as possible.

Since Border Color extension stopped working for higher Tunderbird versions, I was searching for a decent replacement, and this one is far better and complete.
I think it even has to much options, lets you tweak even more styles than I ever needed.

But now, since I upgraded to EarlyBird (TB 20.0a2), it stopped working too.
I hope there'll be a compatible version soon.

Folder Pane Coloring = Good, Thread Pane Coloring = Bad Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The folder pane coloring is very good but thread pane coloring decreases the readability. But I still need some coloring hint in thread pane to still inform me of what account I'm in.

Easy to use and really useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been using this for a few weeks and it has made life a lot easier as I have several email accounts in Thunderbird.
Also I had a small issue with version 6.4 but the developer was very quick to respond with a fix when I sent a Support Email to him - and now everything is working perfectly again :)

A pleasant surprise! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know how I missed this one. I found it and played with it for quite a while to find what my best options would be. It took some time- but I was really impressed with what it could accomplish. This one offers some BIG improvements!

useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

helps a lot when managing many accounts

- one request if possible / a column for the message list displaying just a colored square/dot (too many colors in the unified message list is more disturbing than helpful)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wish I found this years ago! I had to undo lots of customizations in chrome.css file to get this to work, but well worth it! Suggestions:
1. stripe the thread pane too.
2.when a selected row is darkened, its font becomes unreadable when a row in another pane is selected. fix that.

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To make visual distinction between accounts, can't do without anymore. Works fine and offers many options for customization.
After playing with this add-on I missed a possibility to reset everything to default (reinstalling it won't help). This is a minor issue though.
