A very useful and well done tool. It allows to wuickly resotre the arguably much better icons of the previous Mail.app to the new one. They IMHO do not only look better and more pleasing but also are much more compliant to the usability guidelines. Thanks for that little gem, which makes replacing the appropriate resources such an easy process and spare me doing that by hand with every computer being set up.

Thanks, this actually looks very nice. I didn't like the connected buttons in Tiger.

Great idea and looks better than Cage Fighter.

Just hope in the future Apple can sort out the mess that is Tiger Mail.

Has anyone tried running Panther Mail under Tiger ?

Excellent application! Works exactly as advertised. I finally have my old icons back. Thank you!

Also, to anybody who gives this program a bad rating because they like the old icons: shame on you. This program works as advertised and serves an audience. If you're not that audience, then don't use it. You're artificially deflating the ratings, and that's wrong.

I don't understand why people don't like the new mail interface. It's more clean and intuitive. The old buttons were like toys... I wish that all tiger were like that.

As an advice, mail stamp is useless!

Mail Stamps isn't useless, its just useless to _you_. If you like the look of mail, then why the hell download Mail Stamps? Did you not read the description? Your not the target audience.

Mail Stamps works great! If your unhappy with Mail's new look, download it. You'll be really pleased to get the old panther style toolbar again.

I agree with the original poster - Tiger Mail.app looks clean and sleak. I don' tknow why so many people think it's ugly. Odd.

Well, the new Mail toolbar is definately a departure form the OS X style many people have come to grow accustomed to. Traditionally OS X toolbars have been a pretty simple formula, that morrors the overall finder icon style. A semi-photorealistic (but not quite) image above an optional text label.

Many people dislike the new Mail buttons because (whether they realize ot or not) they think they violate this original formula. They are smaller than previous versions, and somewhat less photorealistic (the RE: & Fwd: icons no longer have anything except an arrow whereas previous versions had a stamp or something).

All that said, while it took me a little while to get used to it, I do prefer the new icons for these reasons:

1. They are a little smaller and save screen space (10 px here or there is a big deal to me even on a 17 inch Powerbook).
2. They look like buttons. We've been trained for years "If you want to do something click a button". The new icons use that long term training to make the toolbar more intuitive.

Still, I do kind of miss the eye candy of the more pretty icons & can understand why others may miss it enough top want to regain them.
