Mac (2000-08-21-08 M18) 1. Launch Messenger 2. Do a Get Msg to load all messages 3. Set Prefs "Check for new messages every 1 minute" in Accont Setup, Click OK. 4. From another account, send a message to this account 5. After 1 minute, Observe that.. Actual result: BIFF icons does not appear in the Account Level. (It appears in Taskbars, Folder, and thread pane though) Expected result: It should appear in Account level. This occurs in IMAP on Mac only. POP is OK on Mac and Linux Linux and Win32 is OK.

This bug is mine. I'll take it.
Is this classic or modern or both? If it's classic it's possible we don't have the correct style rule or icon. Otherwise it seems strange that this would happen.
This occurs in Modern Skin. In classic, it works.
I just noticed that in the steps to reproduce this bug, after step 3, it is not stated that the app should be restarted. Please note that after changing the settings for biff, the app needs to be restarted. Unless the app is restarted, the settings won't take effect. Please restart the app and let me know if the problem still occurs.
3. Set Prefs "Check for new messages every 1 minute" in Accont Setup, Click OK. My account has always set this step. This means, it was set before step 1. Sorry for not making this clear.
-, mail6 per mail triage. Icon state appears correctly in taskbar and folder icons.
Sorry for the extra email. Removing mail6 keyword.

Sheela, Is this not the dup of the bug where we need to fix as to not to restart the browser to make the biff work (don't remember the bug number off-hand)..? How this mac only..? bhuvan
FYI, bug 24594 is the one I was talking about where we need to restart the app to effect the biff setting.
Bhuvan, According to fenella's report in this bug she just meant that the biff icon was not showing at the account level. As far as this bug is concerned should be a worksforme. Bug 24594 is still valid but not a dup of this. I see how you feel this could be a dup is because of gayathri's comments in the bug. But this is just about biff icon on at the account level. So I would like to mark this bug as worksforme because I see the biff icons on the account level since a long time. Let me know if you think this should be duped instead. I think they are different problems as I understand.
Sheela, Thanks for your update. I have had doubts that this bug will not be a dup of 24594 as this was reported only Mac. Resolving as WFM.
