    @Hatryst – The Tree Tops theme is the best one they have ever had so far…I think that it looks so terrific with the perfect balance of green and foliage. ^_^

    @Ricci – It really is a lovely set of themes. ^_^

    Sure would be nice if there were some installation instructions.
    What’s the possibility of losing settings and/or junk filters?
    Trees are nice. I may like black wi/white lettering even more.
    I’ve never tried installing a theme on my e-mail acounts. I was always afraid I could lose something important or not be able to restore the original looks of this application.

    @kzinti1 – You do not have to worry about installing anything, just choose the one that you like in the themes section by clicking on it. The new theme will display without having any bad effect on your settings, etc. ^__^ All that you are doing with these themes is changing the background image and colour scheme. ^__^
