The server icon for an IMAP-over-SSL account doesn't change when new mail has
been received. Similarly, the Inbox icon of an IMAP account doesn't change if
Mail thinks the folder is shared.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure IMAP SSL account 
2. wait for new mail
3. server icon doesn't show that new mail arrived

Forgot to mention: patch and new icons are for the Modern theme only. I'm sorry
but I don't have the time to fix Classic.
You'll need review and super-review from here:

>+ * I need !important to override folder-share.gif (don't ask me why). */
Because your rules are in the wrong place. Tree pseudoelements don't have
weighting, so you need to put all your imap shared rules together.

>+treechildren::-moz-tree-image(folderNameCol, biffState-NewMail, isServer-true, serverType-pop3, isSecure-true) {
>+  list-style-image: url("chrome://messenger/skin/icons/server-remote-lock-new.gif") !important;

Modern already has a rule for new secure mail.

I've switched to Firefox and Thunderbird so I've lost interest in this problem
and I don't have much time to devote to it. Anyway, I think the problem and fix
are clear from this bug report, so anyone familiar with the relevant CSS file
should be able to fix it very quickly (and you should be able to use the icons
as they are).
