I love the icons. I already commented on most of your older ones back
on GNUMail, but I want to say that I love the new ones. Especially the
new 'mailboxes' icon looks absolutely gorgeous!
Just one idea: Could you maybe draw an opened variant of that mailbox
with some letters coming out for "get mail"? I could imagine that'd work
I also like your style a lot. It is a nice mix of the old NeXTstep icon
style, the later "Rhapsody" icon style Apple had, with just a tad of
Aqua's style as well.

Yeah, some of the icons aren't frontal, but since most of those refer
to mailboxes, I wouldn't consider them as breaking the guidelines. of
course, the IconKit guys may think differently. They would constitute a
rather liberal interpretation of the guidelines, I guess.
PS - Having been reminded of you "m4d ic0n d3sign3r skillz" ... I'd
really love seeing you do an icon set for GNUstep itself. I'm aware that
this would be a lot of work, and I can't guarantee anyone else but me
will like or even use them, but after seeing your folder icons, I'd like
to see how you'd tackle all those other icons...
