Keep on top of client emails in Mail.app

How do you do that? (Change background colors of those emails which did not get caught by any other rule.)

Thanks!
Darren

In Preferences -> Rules, look under "Perform the following actions:" -> "Set Color of Message".

Related question:

How do you remove the color from a message that somehow has gotten a colored subject?? I don't know if the message arrived colored, or whether I did it somehow myself, but I can't figure out how to 'uncolor' it!

Bring up the "Show Colors" utility window (Format -> Show Colors, or Cmd-Shift-C), then assign a neutral color to the message - probably, White. This is easiest via the "List" picker, Apple set (3rd icon in).

No fear: Mail is not exactly intuitive in this area...
