I'm not too fond of the current icons either, but I don't really think those are an improvement. They are much too colorful for my taste, and I also don't like the differently sized mail symbol.

Also, it's nice that you used Hungarian for the screen shot, as I could not really tell what the first button does. The second and third are probably reply, and forward respectively.

Zumi Never created a "new message" icon, so dsjonny is using an unmodified "unread message" icon in its place. I'm sure you could just whack a + sign on there and people will get the idea.

Zumi made a few different versions of the icons, some with equal sized mail symbols and a some without mail symbols altogether. https://sites.google.com/site/nyhusr/Home/haiku-os-files/files/newdochaiku.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/mail%20forward.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/mail%20reply.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/document%20print.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/edit%20trash.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/go%20down.pnghttp://zumi.xoom.it/myhaiku/btoolbar/go%20up.png

I like those without the mail best, although it would be okay for the new mail case. Still, I think they are pretty colorful.

I have darkened them a bit to see what they look like. I have reduced the brightness by 20% on all but the last icon (it's at 15%), as I don't think the alternative "new message" icon looks that great when as dark as the other icons.

Here is the mock up again, but with darken icons.

Edit: I've also just dimmed down the green plus sign on the new mail icon.

If the trash can is too ambiguous, you could always go with some type of shredder icon, such as: https://sites.google.com/site/nyhusr/Home/haiku-os-files/files/haikushredder2.png

It is not possible inside of haiku; i suppose you will need to contact the developer of the app for this change
