View Full Version : "mail.app" icons of mailboxes, change possible?

Is it possible, to change the standard blue folder icons of my several mailboxes in mail.app?

I have several different mailboxes sorted and would like to differentiate them by different icons.

Although you can change the icons in Finder > User library > Mail > Mailboxes with the usual copy & paste in Get info the changes do not show up in Mail :(

Stuck with large or small blue folders unless someone else has another idea.

I think this may be what you're looking for. This is a link to a replacement for the sidebar icons in mail. they look really nice and I have been using them for a while... comes with easy instructions and if you just make a back up before you replace them it's easy to revert. http://chicanodesigns.deviantart.com/art/Apple-Mail-Sidebar-Replacement-98609859

No, those are not, what I am looking for.

My issue is that all different mailboxes, I sort my mails into are the same small blue folder icon.

I could speed up some mail work, if these could be modified.

Looks though, this is not possible (thanks for the hint Ashka). :(
