It's a wonderful skin, really beautiful and a fantastic copy of the original. I just wanted to ask a question that has already be raised but forgotten in all the excitement. Does anyone know what can be added to make the toolbar background transparent. I mean by that so that the area behind the buttons just inherits the toolbarbackground from whatever theme or vs you happen to be using. I thought it would be easy to do through the userchrome, but so far all my attempts have either done nothing or just messedup the theme totally.

I'm pretty sure you can't do that.

I've tried with a certain void skin for firefox before,

and just doesn't work.

If you want more information, try mozilla's forums maybe, there's a section on skinning.

oh wow, very nice skin for thunderbird. love the acuracy, and i didn't spell that right ;) yet, you force me to use WBlinds again... maybe this weekend i hack away at thunderbird, see if I can get it as close as I can to the actual Apple Mail. I'll see what I can do.

Edit: Did lots of expansion over at this thread: http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=32218

Very cool,

thanks for the new clear vertical splitter of the sidebar :)

If you want to set a background image of the splitter that devides the list of mails an the current opened mail, you can edit userChrome.css (application datathunderbirdprofiles..chrome) by adding those lines:

/* Use a image for the splitter */

#threadpane-splitter {

background-image: url("splitter.bmp") !important;

background-color: none !important;

}

You can use that image as splitter.bmp: http://www.inpacshp.de/trash/spliter.bmp

btw: At the moment I'm trying to create an extesion that places the two buttons of the original Apple Mail on the bottom left in the siderbar. I will release it as soon as I managed to place them at the right position and set a background image. See the image for a closer look how far I came :)

Grab it now from here or click "Find Updates" within Thunderbird if you have already installed Tiger Mail.
