Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Thunderbird 2. Let startup check for new mail, run 3. Make sure a new mail has landed in one of the the IMAP subfolders (place the mail in the folder on the server-side) 4. Wait for automatic mailcheck to kick in Actual Results: Thunderbird will not detect the new mail in the folder Expected Results: Thunderbird should highlight the folder as to have received a new mail You have to close and open Thunderbird again, for it to highlight the subfolder in the list.
Works for me. Courier-IMAP server. Is message checking enabled for that folder? [folder]->context menu->properties->[x] Check this folder for new messages
Talk about hidden feature, I thought it would naturally check all subfolders, and you didn't need to mark them one by one.
