What I am missing in Sylpheed is that currently you
may search messages which have a "color label", but
you __cannot__ choose the color to search.

Also filtering and ordering by color would be useful,
but i prefer beeing able to search by color first.

As has already said in this thread, the usefulness of
this feature is user dependent. For me is that i use
colors for labeling e-mail in a same folder: red is
for meetings, blue for documents and interfaces, brown
for tasks i've been requested, and so on. This way for
me is easier to search than searching for words in the
content of e-mails.

For me it would be even better to have "real" labels,
like gmail ones, but as sylpheed already have colors,
i think it would be easier to develop this request.
