Using evolution-3.10.4, I was wondering if there is a way to apply a
highlight colour or some other contrasting highlight to new mail

At present, new messages are identified by a slightly changed icon in
the 'status' column and by making the font in the message list bold, 
that's it; and neither of these are particularly contrasting.

there is no such (direct) option. One way is to use filters to either 
assign a color or a label to a new message, but it will never unset 
the property on its own, thus you might also have something to unset 
it (using for example labels lets you unset it from a popup menu). Of 
course, this is not that convenient as just the automatically used 
bold font.

I suggest to file an enhancement request at 
(search for one first, in case it's already filled), to have a style 
property of the message list for a font color of the new messages. 
Someone may pick the bug report and provide a patch for you and once 
it's done you would be able to define the color from the outside of 
evolution. Please sent here a bug link, for a future references.
        Thanks and bye,
