[HELP WANTED][RFE] Mail icons for replied and forwarded
This is followup on bug 22028. I think it would be very nice if the mail icon reflected the full status of a message. Outlook does this, and it's very helpful to be able to see at one glance whether that message you're looking at has only been read, or also been replied to or forwarded. The icons are a letter icon with a left-arrow for replied and a right arrow for forwarded. Alternatively, you could replace the status column with icons. Having the status column resized so that you can see the replied to/forwarded status of each message would cut the usable width of the thread display in half, since the status column actually says "replied and forwarded"! Make it icons and the status bar would only take up 1-2 characters in width.

Whiteboard: [HELP WANTED]
Netscape doesn't plan to do this. Two reasons: (1) we want to make the thread pane simpler, and adding icon states makes it more complicated. (2) We don't have the graphic design resources to do icons for all the different combinations of message state (new, attachment, replied, forwarded, offline, etc.) So, I'm moving this over to the [help wanted] list, and cc'ing jglick, our UI designer.
Isn't this the same as #22112?
Yes, you are right. Maybe changing the status column form text to icons could be easily doen (more easily than doing all the CSS stuff suggested in 22112), and would serve the same purpose. Mark this a dup and think about it, or don't and change the summary if you think its a good idea.

Making dup. Will post the status column ideas, as these would solve my problems. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 22112 ***
