Currently you can enter a text string or pick a name from the NAB to set background colours when receiving an email in the ($inbox)
It would be nice to allow e.g */ACME or */Sales/ACME as an option
It would be lovely (but REALLY hard, I suspect) to allow groups in there too

You can set a an Internet domain, and Notes will color the entire domain. So that gets you part of the way there.

Also, I suspect that allowing an entire Organization or OU defeats the purpose as you would then have a preponderance of e-mail as the background, making it the majority. The point of background view colors is to identify the outlier, important, or less frequent message to ensure you respond expeditiously.

If */ACME is set, then you are essentially no better off than having a white background with black or red text.
