Well, sports, this is your fashion captain speaking
This particular thread by yxyn proved very promising with regard to the old ugly standard Windows Mobile threaded SMS window.
So here is a thread dedicated to skinning the default WM Conversation / Threaded SMS window.
Please, I urge you, read this post twice!
This heavy stuff enhances the standard WM Messaging window, making it look awesome!
First of all, and most notably, it adds a top bar with the receiver’s contact picture and his or her name.
This remains on top while scrolling through the messages.
Secondly, a bunch of images and a different colour scheme give it a new look.
Currently, there are several flavours to choose. Some of them are made by me, some belong to other passionate skinners.
Check it out below!
- Windows Mobile Version 6.1 or higher
- Windows Mobile Threaded Messaging (If disabled: click here for a cab to enable it)
- Touch-screen Device (WM Professional)
- All devices and manufacturers
- All resolutions
- Fuzzy images on VGA+ resolutions
- A contact picture is only displayed of the most recent message in the thread is from the other person (so, not you)
- Double Scrollbars
- After rotating the screen, text might realign itself to the left
- Conversation with multiple recipients works, but the topbar might be slightly off.
- Enable Windows Mobile Threaded Messaging (If disabled: click here for a cab to enable it)
- Disable HTC Sense / Manila Messaging, so not the whole today plugin (if enabled, click here for Zenyee's cab)
- Download one of the cabs below (Be sure to take the right version!)
- Soft reset, or terminate tmail.exe
- Enjoy! Feedback is much appreciated
I am greatly indebted to yxyz who introduced me to the possibilities. My work is a corollary of his work.

No, seriously, this stuff alters system files, which bears a certain risk at all times. It may unintentionally affect other applications or system business. Even though chances are slim to none, please back up your device before applying this tweak.
