If you create a saved search folder using the "entire message" quicksearch field, that saved search folder will not update properly. The folder unread count does not update when new messages come in and it does not update when unread messages are marked as read (even from within the saved search folder.) Steps to reproduce: 1. focus the quicksearch field, select "entire message", and and type in the letter "a". 2. if this gives results, then save that as a search folder. if no results, your mailbox must be empty :-) 3. enter the saved search folder and mark some messages as unread and then as read. 4. enter your inbox and mark some messages as read and then unread. 5. wait for new unread mail to arrive. results: the saved search folder does not update unread mail count until you leave it and reselect it, even in the case that you marked the messages read within the saved search folder. expected results: the unread message count should reflect reality as best as it can and hopefully better than it is now. additional info: this is the case whether you have selected to search online or not.
This is related to Bug#270232 I'd imagine
Scott, this is the bug I was just talking to you about. Turns out there was a report on this issue :-) - your friendly neighborhood saved search power user
Created attachment 210414 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix comments in the patch say it all...
Asa says he'll verify this for us on the trunk if we can get it checked there for him :).
fixed on trunk, thx, Asa.
Asa, can you let us know how this is treating you on the trunk these days?
Comment on attachment 210414 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix should we try this on the 1.8.1 branch david? Maybe we can get asa to verify it for us there :)
Yeah. This worked for me on the trunk. I'm back on the branch right now so I'd be thrilled to verify it there too.
yeah, I'll put this on the branch
