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


New member

Would really love to have the color (by account) function.

New member

Just adding my voice to the crowd here: Thunderbird has always been my mail client of choice, but with many accounts, the disappearance of the colors to identify the different mailboxes has become a thorn in my foot.

Please add on this Account Colours feature. I'm a migrant from Bluemail and it has this feature, which is what I miss in Thunderbird. 

New member

Please add the Accounts Colors feature.

I totally agree. Many other clients do this. I quit using Thunderbird to try Mailspring and Bluemail because they offer the possibility of using colour accounts out of the box. Still, I have always been a fan of Thunderbird and I will get back to it as soon as I can easily see which email comes from which account in the unified inbox view.

Please implement different account colours....As everyone says its needed when you have multiple accounts. I use BlueMail on my mobile, might change desktop to that ???


New member

I agree.  This is a great idea.  I have multiple accounts and it would be so much easier if each had a specified color and icon, especially when using the Unified Folders.

I'm really keen to begin using Thunderbird again, but I don't want to have to regress 45 versions so that I can use this add-on, and this functionality to see which email account an email has come from in a unified inbox by color, makes or breaks an email client for me... the new Thunderbird has clearly advanced a huge amount in the years I have been using other software. Could one of the mozilla team (or perhaps DW-dev who developed this wonderful account colors add-on before?) give us some idea of how complex the task might be to implement this as an add-on for the current version of Thunderbird? Is it something trivial, or very complex? I'm a programmer, so if it's not super-complex, perhaps a few of us could gang up and get this done as an add-on again? What I'd like even more is to hear that our pleas have been heard and this will get baked into the main program, but I appreciate that you will have many demands to prioritise and repond to.

Please add the ability to color the accounts.  I have 5 accounts in TB and it would make managing this so much easier.  Loved the old account color add-in

New member

I really need it. I manage >20 accounts on my TB and I'm lost without grouping/coloring features.
