It would really be nice if the "New Mail" icon in the notification area looked more distinct from the default icon. Right now, the only difference on a Jaunty installation is a yellow star, which looks far too similar on the default white panel background. More contrast between the two icons would be great.

The bug attachment shows the default icon, the new mail icon, and a modified version that I currently use. It's not pretty, but it's obvious from across the room that you have mail and can serve as an example to illustrate the issue.
