I do find it necessary that users should be able to change the color of unread mail in the Notes client 8.5 from black to red, either by providing a special mail preference or by providing a seperate theme.
The method for changing the color by editing the com.ibm.notes.branding_8.5.0.20081211-1925.jar is to cumbersome and expensive to implement such a change globally for the users that want to keep the look they have come accustomed to for many years.

I am happy to inform interested parties that the NOTES 8.5.1 SNEAK-PEAK reveals that "And of course, there's the ability to use red text for unread mail instead of bold text"

I am a happy customer !

This can be marked as closed since it's fixed in 8.5.1.
