    I bought my ipad since mid last year. I have a few different email accounts because of work, school, etc..
    I have noticed that because i had quite a few email accounts, in the mail app, they each were color coded. Recently i had to completely wipe my ipad and restore it from factory which a technician helped me with since Im not as familiarized with apple when it comes to technical stuff. Well, now the color coded email accounts are no longer color coded. Was it because of the restore or did i actually mess something up another kind of way ? Is there a setting to fix this? My ipad was not one that was jailbroken, if thats the right term. Has anyone else had this problem ? Can someone help me? Thanks in advance !

    The only color coding I've seen for the Mail app was due to a jail break tweak called "Color Mail Labels." And, the only way to have/run this tweak was on a jail broken device. It has not been updated for iOS 7.

    IOW, no, there are no colored mail labels on a stock iPad in the stock Mail app. Sorry. Maybe it was in another app...?

    It is possible to apply label colors to aliases for you iCloud account if you go to in a browser. I don't think it has any affect on the Mail app, but I could be wrong.

    You can also assign colors on OS X, but again, it does not have any affect in Mail on iOS.

    If there is anyway to assign colors to accounts in Mail on the iPad, I am not aware of it.

    Calendars and Reminders, those you can color code.
