+1 at least for unread mails, bold is not visible enough

I would like to take a stab at adding colors to aerc. Has there been any decisions made regarding the possible implementation or configuration?

My current idea for configuration, contains a [colors] sections in the aerc.conf file. This would contain the default tcell style and subsection that would work for specific objects.

[colors]
bg=ColorGreen
fg=ColorWhite
attr=Bold

[colors:index_read]
fg=ColorMaroon

[colors:index_unread]
fg=ColorBlue

These configurations get converted to tcell.style and can be accessed through a public function in config.

config.GetStyle(STYLE_DEFAULT)
config.GetStyle(STYLE_INDEX_READ)

I am looking forward to any comments on this idea. PS. Sorry about my horrible color choices :p

Sounds great!

Please do take this discussion to the normal aerc mailing list. I'm not sure how many of the usual contributors actually browse through the todos. Drew (semi-) jokingly said that he /dev/nulls the todo emails for one...

Is this acceptable for you?

Sure no worries, I will post the same there and ask for comments.
