I'd like to have the possibility to change color to each account label and icon.

Hi everyone, 🙂

I can only agree with you all, such a native feature would make multi-accounts management clearer and would be a great time-saver!

I also stopped Thunderbird's updates just for DW-dev's Account Colors and really hope TB's developers could implement such a functionality soon.

Please include the functionality of the add-on Account Colors. It may not seem like simply being able to custom color the various accounts in the folders and messages in panes is that great, but let me tell you: it made Thunderbird come alive! Besides being VERY functional for quickly and intuitively distinguishing between accounts, it was just beautiful! You would just have to see it to understand.

Like others, I stayed on the old version of Thunderbird for this one add-on. All my other must-have add-ons finally updated. Then I was forced to update, and lost Account Colors.

Please implement this feature! This would be a defining feature of this email client. Its the kind of thing that you don't know you need until you have it.

I too think we need account coloring. This will GREATLY reduce the chance of sending email from the wrong account when you have more than one.

If it can help, the BorderColors add-on highlights the email composer based on the sender account. Disclosure: I am the main developer / maintainer.

This request equates to where I have noted the add-on author definitely has stopped developing the add-on. 

Making moves

To make Tbird the absolute best it can be, all the functionality that the Account Colors add-on provided must be made standard. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is good news!

How many opportunities are there to actually make an email client beautiful? And yet still functional at the same time?
