That's fine!

I agree fully with you that the red colour here is a really good indicator  
for "something went wrong" - I support keeping it!

That's a good idea - it might be difficult, though, to find one which  
looks good as label string *and* in the header box... Anyway, the user  
still has the option to switch to black (or whatever the standard text  
colour is with that theme) if (s)he doesn't like it.

I must admit that I have mixed feelings about removing the reply level  
colours (an other suggestion by Mi┼ču), as it also gives a good indication  
of the structure of the message, but sometimes the level is calculated  
wrong, so it's confusing. Maybe we should reduce the number of levels and/ 
or let the user choose between, say, italic, colour, or both.

Just my ÔéČ 0.01...

Cheers,
