The badge icon is not correct in Version 1.9.6 (5347).

It looks translucent and also less "bright" red:

    It's partly because the dock icon counters in MailMate do not use the system provided API. This allows MailMate to have up to 4 counters (configured in the Counters preferences pane). Low level, it's possible to change the color, but I think the proper fix here is probably to let MailMate have a mode in which it does use the system provided counter.

    I'll note this as a feature request, but I don't have any time frame for you.

    It is surprisingly tricky, but in the next update I've attempted to make the primary counter look more like the standard one.

    I have still not added a mode in which MailMate just switches to the standard badging and therefore I'm keeping the ticket open.

    Caveat: I did this on Sierra assuming it's the same on High Sierra, but I haven't checked that yet.

    Sounds good. When do you think the next update will be released?

    Within a few days: Hold down ⌥ when clicking “Check Now” in the Software Update preferences pane. You'll need r5440+.

    I've improved it a bit more such that it's now drawn almost identically to the standard badge.
