Here's the rundown:
Toolbars: all work except for "Close" under Main Window

That's strange--that icon is handled no differently from the others, afaict.

Message list: None of the status/attachment/encrypted icons work (For the record, I haven't tested the mailbox icons.)

OK--those are created differently from the toolbar items, using gtk_widget_render_icon(). The attached patch switches to gtk_icon_theme_load_icon(), which is suggested in the Gtk docs ( It seems to bypass the stock items in the GtkIconFactory, and go straight to the files--at least, I had to install Balsa's xpm files in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/ to get them seen.

Message window: Only the "recheck GPG" icon works; the attachment and message parts icons do not.

The "recheck GPG" icon is the one embedded to the right of the headers? That's created using gtk_image_new_from_stock(), which therefore seems to be safe. The attachment icon is created the same way, but with a gnome stock name: "gnome-stock-attach"--you could try replacing that with "balsa_attachment" or BALSA_PIXMAP_ATTACHMENT. I find gnome-stock-attach.png only under Bluecurve.

Are the "message parts icons" the ones in the tree-view on the Message parts notebook page?

Menus: All of the "standard" GTK icons--copy, paste, close, help, etc.--work, but the others do not.

That may also be a naming issue: Balsa passes e.g. the string "balsa_menu_new" to GnomeApp for the "Toggle New" item, but the xpm file is src/pixmaps/menu_new.xpm.

Compose window: nothing unique to mention

Great!  That's progress, right?
