New notification style on send/receive message error

As some users pointed out the big red X on the account is not visible enough when there is an error on send/receive e-mail messages. But this really becomes an issue, when you spend most of your time working in Favorite mail view as now you have to explicitly switch to Classic view.

Well in a few days this will be in the past. As I’ve decided to add notifications at the top when such an error happens.

There will be at most one bar per account displayed. And the text will change depending on when the error happened (send, receive, send and receive). Right now I don’t think that I should limit the number of displayed bars as most users have a small number of accounts.

If anyone would like to play with the colors e.g make it reddish,  please let me know and I’ll give out the current ones.

Update 08.01.2010: This is now implemented in latest 1.2.x development builds.
