Because of my job, school, personal life and ISP restrictions, I have four e-mail addresses. Some of you probably have more! I like how Apple created the unified e-mail box ("All Inboxes") aspect of the Mail app in iOS 4.0. However, it gets a bit confusing trying to figure out which e-mail is for what purpose. Color Mail Labels to the rescue!

Color Mail Labels ($0.99 USD):
[Cydia Description]: Ever wonder if there was a way to organize your iPhone/iPod e-mail accounts the same way you can on Gmail using color labels? Well now you can. Color Mail Labels is a simple tweak that will allow you to do just that. Use the Mail Labels app [icon] that is added to your homescreen. It allows you to configure which mail accounts get colored.

Now, with each mail identified with a color, I can easily tell which e-mail is for which account:

If you back up/out of your All Inboxes, you'll see each account is coded a different color:

The set up is very simple. Buying and installing the tweak puts an icon on your homescreen. When you activate it, you get options to select an e-mail account you have loaded on your iPad (this works with both IMAP and POP accounts). After you select the account you wish to modify, you get a color-picker screen. Use HSV, RGB or Hex codes to select - or just touch within the color box (the bottom bar controls saturation).

There are many options to display the colors: big rectangles, small squares, etc. As you can see from the first picture, I chose "Colored date block" (because the color still shows when the e-mail is highlighted).

I recommend this tweak to anyone with more than one e-mail account. It aids tremendously in organization, is highly customizable and is darn cheap! It's one of my favorites, although, as always, YMMV.

My apologies for not mentioning this earlier...

This tweak is currently installed on an iPad1 running iOS version 4.3.3. However, it also ran on iOS 4.2.1 (back before I upgraded).

Hope that helps.

I like this. You have four emails? Hell no. I have two and that is enough. One personal one for work.

I am going to get this this weekend! So I will see you then ~ you know I will need help!:eek:
