    This is very useful, thanks for sharing it. Just one question: What does dark light mean?

    • Eustace2

      It means that the icon associated with the account has a dark green outline with a light green background.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The icon associated with the account has dark green lines with a light green background.

      Thanks,

        Thanks again!

    Actually it started different for me. First one was orange, but the sequence looks right.

    • TheDigitalDisciple

      What version of Android are you using? I wonder if Google alters the order in different versions of Android. I haven’t taken the time to check the colors and sequence in 4.2.

      • Istvan

        Come to think of it It might be that I “used” the first few colors before, even though I did a factory reset.

    On my Nexus 5 running Android 4.4, the colors are:

    #71aea7
    #621919
    #18462f
    #bf8e52
    #001f79
    #a8afc2
    #6b64c4
    #738359
    #9d50a4

    I attached an image with the colors in order of appearance. The hex color codes are taken from the Android source:

    This is great, thank you. Have you found any way to change the colors apart from deleting and re-entering the e-mail account?

  • Ken Pataky

    I don’t see any color indicators for the email from 3 different email accounts I have displayed in Combined View on my stock email app, running Android 4.3 on Samsung Galaxy Note 2. They all appear the same. Please help, if you know how to add colors!! Thanks.

    • Ken Pataky

      When I open the main account view, I see 3 different thin color stripes along the left side–pink, orange, and blue–but the Combined View, in this menu and when displaying emails, shows no colors. Please help! Thanks.

    • Ken Pataky

      Wow…I just now noticed that the colors are actually there…along the left side of each email! But they are so thin, they are almost imperceptible. Ouch.

    • TheDigitalDisciple

      Ken, I guess this has been self-help blogging for you. I missed the colors the first time too. I have lost count of how many technology questions that I have answered with “Duh, how did I miss that?” Thanks for dropping by.
