Just give me a white/blacklist!

(But I have to agree that the new colored labels are useful!)

Great addition, too bad it doesn't work in Opera though.

Likewise! I did a little test and changed my language settings to "English (US)" from "English (UK)" and the coloured labels were available. After I reverted back to "English (UK)", the labels colours were gone again and I was back to green. Perhaps you're in the same situation?

Nice. It seems like the color options are either too light or too dark, though.

One thing I want to suggest, is to have the Labels act like the ones in Calendar where you could untick whichever and hide them.

I was already using this feature through a Greasemonkey script. The new version made the Greasemonkey script obsolete but thank god they brought it back. Wish they had also included the "List of the last recent searches" box under the labels list (another script I had)

I like them but sometimes they seems to be ugly as they are so light or so dark

i want them to add option to remove the colors completely not to make it fade as now when i remove a color
the labeled mails seems ugly


and i wish if i can color the emails in the inbox as when i go to all mails and there are emails from my inbox
they are labeled inbox with Grey Ugly color so i wish to change this too .
