After writing an entry on how to change the default Dock icon for Mail.app, I thought I’d look around for as many different icons as I could find.
Here are the results. The list only includes “specialised” collections or individual icons. Many more icons are contained in whole system-wide collections. If I’ve missed any collections that you know of, please let me know. A full listing of the different icons follows the jump.
Some of these mail stamps are images not icons. In order to use them, you will need to convert with something like img2icns, a free utility which does a great job.
