Highlight messages with label color
This used to be the default behavior, but changed in the latest update to Airmail 2.0 - label colors now only highlight the top right corner of the message which for me makes them much harder to see.
I used this feature extensively to visually distinguish messages - I would love if this came back.
Agreed. Either inlining the label in the non-XL skins (like you can do in Gmail in the "compact" look) or highlighting them. Either way, they need to be much more visually salient to be useful for power users.
+1 absolutely needed
This needs to be done. It is essential specifically when you have a large number of emails coming in.
+1 , We really need this. Mail App and Outlook both support this.
I Agree. The flag in the upper right is lame. Full highlight on the emails in the inbox is much better.
Me too. Need this. I have hundreds of emails a day and that little flag does not flag anything at all.

I came here specifically to make the same comment. Love Airmail for clean look, coloured message was less fussy and much more eye catching, which is the point, surely.

Yep. That change rendered the productivity labels useless.
