Description Andrew Overholt 2007-04-13 16:08:29 UTC
Underscores are shown in Edit -> Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> Colours. 
See screenshot.  I don't *think* this is intentional but I guess it could be.

Should be relatively simple and nice to have for F7.

Comment 3 Milan Crha 2007-04-25 15:14:49 UTC
I think this is not a bug. You could rename colors, so you could give them your
own meaning. The underscore is used to mark an accelerator in menu, (like right
click over a message and choose Label submenu), I think you need to see these
underscores and an ability to change a meaning of the color is advantage as well.
But I may miss something, could you write here the result, which you expect?
(May be changing all predefined names without underscores, but it's against
accelerators in menu)

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-28 15:18:22 UTC
I'd say that this is not a bug

Comment 5 Andrew Overholt 2007-04-28 18:04:04 UTC
I don't see how the underscores are supposed to be known to non-programmers. 
But I will not protest.

Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-28 18:39:28 UTC
Underscores or not, it would be helpful to add some verbage to that tab
explaining what those options do.  It's not very intuitive.  But this is
upstream's problem anyway, I suppose.

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-03 01:59:50 UTC
Yeah, not worth carrying a fedora patch for.

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-03 12:57:20 UTC
It is also somewhat odd that there is an extra configuration tab for the colors
and labels, but no way to add additional colors/labels. The whole thing looks
very obviously extensible, unless there is some wierd interoperability
constraint with exchange or something like that preventing it...
