Please, please, do consider adding them, It would definitely improve
Sylpheed users' experience on dark background themes =)

While we're on this subject: could you please consider making the X-Mailer
header color also configurable? AFAIK it is also hardcoded to blue, isn't

My final (somewhat unrelated) request would be to make the color labels'
colors configurable as well. I believe this would make Sylpheed completely
configurable color-wise (IMHO some of the default colors  don't play nice
even with the default white background -- e.g. cyan).

Thks for listening =)
