Using trunk build 20030415 on winxp, macosx and linux and the new prefill filter for newsgroups using the Default action of Delete, the newsgroup count for unread messages will include in the number count the deleted messages each time the user pings the newserver for new messages. This constant changing of the unread count will cause confusion for the users especially if no messages are download when clicking Get Msg. 1. Launch app that has a newsgroup and mail account. 2. Send a message from a mail account to that newsgroup and get the message. 3. Select the address of sender, right mouse click and select "Create a Filter from Message" accept the prefill defaults (which includes the action to Delete the Message). 4. Send 4 more messages to that newsgroup and click get message Result: the 4 messages that are deleted from view will show up in the Folder pane count Total, Unread columns and paraenthesis if the unread column is not displayed. Expected: these message counts should not show up in these columns Note, if you switch to another newsgroup or mail account and then back to the newsgroup with the bad counts the counts will revert back to what they should be until you click Get Msg again.
nominating since another bug regarding false positive bug counts (bug 64476) was nominated and fixed AND because this is a new feature with Delete as the default action (more users will run into this).
Note, the msf file for this newsgroup may be the problem, if I remove it and let it build again, the count is correct. cd'ing sspitzer
