is colour coding no longer available

Wed Feb 28, 2024 1:22 am

Hi all,
I seem to remember that many years ago it was possible to apply colour coding to emails from different sources for easy identification, is that facility still available? I cannot seem to find anywhere to assign colours to the different emails.

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Yes, you can sort of do this with your filters, it colours the filter name when caught with whatever colour you choose, eg:

You can create a filter for each of your contacts, or group of contacts then assign a color to that filer. Since there are limited choices of colors in Mailwasher, you can edit the Filters.xml file (with Notepad) and insert a hex value of a different color - giving you nearly limitless color options. Just make sure you make a copy of the Filters.xml file for safe keeping, just in case you goof while editing.
