The first thing that I did was enlarge the fonts.  Many of the spaces 
for icons scale either with the size of the associated text (good) 
or with the size of the icon itself (very good).  

A screen shot did get through in another post.  It shows a 26x20 
watchthread.png that fits well with the large font, but still looks 
lost next to the 49x49 toolbar icons.

Maybe a ham indicator could be used for a whitelist, things that 
have a better than "unknown" rating.  Although the Monty Python 
Spam / Ham joke will not translate well to Jews or Muslims.  

Also while configuring the toolbar(s) there is text for learn 
spam or ham, not separate text for each.  So I think that the 
ham button icon is unused.  (As well as any ham icon.)

I created dummy icons, rot13.png and rot13_btn.png, but neither was used.  
A blue folder showed up.
