Stylin’ Gmail

I use MailPlane to read my email (via gmail). Having some leisure time I decided to poke around its styling options.

MailPlane’s preferences let you override the default gmail styling with your own CSS. Here are three classes important to the listing of mail in your inbox:

.xY

The entire row

.y2

The message snippet

.zF

Who unread mail is from (other than yourself)

For example:

.xY{
color:white;
background-color: #045D9E;
}
.y2{
color:#8FD5FF;
}
.zF{
color: yellow;
}

That will produce this:

Example of styled inbox

Unfortunately, you never know when Google might decide to change these class names or restructure the entire damn thing. On the other hand, you can always just delete the CSS.
