Yeah, i know - tampering with the all mighty hawkwings icon might make me unpopular, knowing there's people who litterally swears by their mail.app icon, and due to a number of productivity reasons never would think of changing it.
I've always liked those old Air mail envelopes with the red and blue stripes on it. Theres something 'old worldish' to them, a sense of importance. Mail traveling around the world extraordinarily by plane, in these specially flagged envelopes. I think it's an underappreciated quality that seem to have been forgotten in our inbox filled, electronicly busy everyday lives.
