Thank you so much Reto!

Indeed! What was looking weird was
	color index brightyellow black ~N
	color indicator default cyan
resulting in brightyellow over cyan when the indicator was on a new email.

I now changed this to
	color index brightyellow black ~N
	color indicator black cyan
which looks better, but still gets me bold grey over cyan, which is s
till a bit hard to read. I reckon the indicator simpy inverts the
brightyellow? The old behavior was actually non-bold black over cyan
here. Does anyone know of a way to restore this for the indicator?

Again, this was very helpful! Thanks!
