This can also be done with indev.ca/MailTags.html, but your question was about coloring folders, which can't be done as fideli correctly points out. –  ridogi Jan 7 '10 at 17:15
right, that's why i said that's the closest that I could fine, I'm not very happy as I need to mark folders not messages –  alexus Jan 7 '10 at 18:09
