An option to select which folders to show notification mail icons for.  Probably
could use the same UI as offline synchronization chooser window.

I'd like to be able to just get new mail notification for mail that lands in my
Inbox, since I don't read mailing list mail and bugmail as soon as it comes in.
 The option could be part of the filter (a checkbox for "suppress new mail
notification" below "perform this action") or part of the new-mail-notification
feature.  I prefer making the option part of the filter because that allows more
precise control with less extra UI, and because it allows the user to discover
and select the option while creating the filter.

We already have this, but apparently, since this has received many dupes, this
isn't easily discoverable.

It's in the context-menu for each folder, under Properties.

It was implemented in bug 146559.

Also, the ability to check messages from other folders was bug 18266. 

Reporter obviously expected to find something around the folder properties, thus
the current location for the option isn't that bad. I think bigger problem is
that people are using older builds that don't have this feature (I think it
didn't make it to 1.0, did it?).

Jesse, I think it would be better to file a new bug about the possibility of
suppressing new mail notification when a filter is applied. Your request is
actually quite the opposite from the usual "want to check other folders also".
