  • Working as a Zimbra Feature 

    By: jdelacruz on on 3/14/16 for version 1.3

    Hi guys, Zimbra includes a feature to do this - https://blog.zimbra.com/2015/08/know-message-color/ You can add Filters and then Tag that filter, then the filter will have a Color and you can see that color using this Zimbra Feature.

    We don't need an extra Zimlet.
