BuildID:    2002020415

In the folderlist I first select a folder other than Inbox (when starting with
the Inbox folder, there is no problem; the Inbox belongs to a movemail mail
account).  Then I press the "Get Msgs" button - mail is recieved and the number
of unread maisl in folder list is updated correctly. Now i choose the Inbox from
the folder list. The mousepointer changes to the hour glass and the content of
the inbox is listed in the message window. The mouse pointer now does not change
back to normal! When I select one of the new messages, the font of this  message
in the message list changes to normal (non-bold), but the number of unread mails
in the folderlist for the Inbox is not reduced. When selecting another folder
the wrong number is still displayed but when reselecting the Inbox everything is
correct again.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce: other folder than inbox
2.send mail to the according account "Get Msgs"
4.change folder to inbox
5.selecta new message

Actual Results:  mouse pointer is changed to hour glass, number of unread mails
is not updated

Expected Results:  mouse pointer should be the normal pointer, number of unread
mails reduced by 1

Similar to/dupe of bug 104475? Reporter, have you got multiple mail accounts in
Mozilla too?

No, I would not say that this is similar to bug 104475. I have multiple mail
accounts but I do not use "Get All New Messages", only the "Get Msgs"-Button
that, as far as I know, should only get the messages for the selected account.
The number of unread mails is updated correctly when receiving the mails from
the server/movemail account, it is not updated correctly when reading the new

Reporter, does this bug still exist?  I had similar problems several weeks ago
and the counter works again for me.
