Somewhere along the way someone posted a great way to change the Mail icon on the dock to a Canadian stamp icon. I did this on my old MBP, but for some reason it was lost when I used Migration Assistant and wasn't transferred to my new MBP.

Can someone remind me how it is done?

You can't paste them in anymore like we used to be able to do but you can still replace it. If I recall you need to swap the graphic that's stored in mail.app and then reboot (or relaunch the dock). That's the way I did it but I think you can also just give everyone Read/Write priv's in the Get Info window at the bottom and paste in the icon.

A much easier method is to just change the permissions.

Do right-click or cmd-i (Get Info) on the app, under sharing & permissions, click the lock icon if needed, then give 'everyone" read-write privileges. Click the icon in the Get Info window so it's selected and paste the icon you want. After the change you can put "everyone" back to read-only access if you want.
