There should be a visual indication (folder name displayed with bold font and 
the number of new messages) in the shared folders. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Get Msgs, or check "Use IDLE command" 
Actual Results:  
There is no indication that new messages have arrived in the shared folders.  
Only clicking on those folders reveals the new mail. 

Expected Results:  
If Use IDLE command is checked or when clicking "Get Msgs" there should have 
been visual indication that new mail is present in the shared folders.  Kmail 
1.6.2 does this, when clicking "check mail in".

In the mean time I have discovered an option that the user can check to obtain 
the visual indication of new mail in folders.  That is Right Click on folder, 
Properties, Check this Folder for New Messages.  It would be nice to have that 
on, by default.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
