Thanks very much! This is great!

Btw, except for one missing feature (important in my opinion) that one can not select all the messages found from the outcome of a search and act upon them in one shot (eg, move to a folder, delete, etc), sylpheed is the best e-mailer around. 

Best wishes,

This is called icon theme, and I see it is a long-awaited feature.
I have implemented a preliminary icon theme feature at the development tree
(svn r3284).

It checks for the following directories in that order, and if found,
read icons from the directory.

The file names are basically same as those of src/icons/*.{png,xpm},
except for extension (xpm -> png).

Note that some icons on toolbars (such as Print, Draft) are not themed yet.
