I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
I have 3 email accounts set up in the email client and I would like to change the colors assigned to each of the accounts.
Is it possible? I haven't been able to find any setting to do it. In this question they say it's not possible in Android 2.2, but how about 4.1?

I've tried on my Galaxy S3 and I couldn't find a way to do this.

Searching on the web returns nothing more (aside of trying to delete/recreate an account until it's given the color you want, which I didn't try).

You can use another mail client than the one pre-installed on the GS3.

I've tried the following ones:

  • MailDroid: great one, possible to choose the color for each account from a palette, free version is ad-based
  • AquaMail: good one too, you can choose the color for each account from 8 predefined colors, free version has no ads
  • K-9 Mail: possible to choose the color for each account from a palette, no ads, but looks a bit old

Enhanced email from the market will allow to choose account and notification colors for each account. However it lacks the subject in the notification, which is why I stick with stock.

  • Your suggestion to use another email client is a good one. It would be more useful if you also include a link to the app you're suggesting.
