Guide Review - Mail Stamps 2.1 - Mac OS X Mail Add-On
In a simple preference-style application, Mail Stamps exchanges Panther's icons for Tiger's and vice versa. Additionally, you can make Mail use the system-wide highlighting color for the selected folder in the mailbox pane. If you had grouped icons ("Reply Reply All Forward", for example) in the Mail toolbar, the older, bigger icons installed with Mail Stamps will appear cropped a bit. This minor inconvenience is easily fixed by customizing the toolbar, however.
If you are the change-is-pleasure type of icon beholder, a preference pane for switching between the different icon designs might be nice, though the small app used for switching is fine, too. Mail Stamps could profit from more custom icons, of course.
In general, all this is not needed. If the you miss the old Mail icons, Mail Stamps is a tool you'll love.
