History Colors

TntMPD uses color in the History to help you identify "relationally significant" activities. The basic premise is that appointments, phone calls, and thank yous have a higher personal relationship aspect than e-mails, newsletters, and to do tasks. And in all cases, completed tasks are more valuable than attempts.

Note: The strikethrough on Attempts can be disabled in Tools | Options | User Interface tab.
