Did You Know? Message Color

Did You Know? Message Color zimbralogo_colorsThere is a fantastic (yet hard-to-find) feature that enables you to set the color of your email messages to match the color of the applied tag. So, if you apply a yellow tag to a message, the message will be displayed in yellow in your inbox.

To enable this feature:

1. Click the Preferences tab, and select Mail. In the Displaying Messages area, select the Message Color option, as shown below.

Note: Don’t forget to click Save.


Before enabling Message Color, my inbox looked like this:


Now it looks like this, with the tag color applied to the entire message.

    Would be nice to have that in the desktop client (not to mention an actual native desktop client).

      I would have to agree with that. I hope it will be available soon.

    I’ve been doing this for quite some time now…if something isn’t colored in my inbox then it doesn’t belong in my inbox.
