Because of my fix for 7002, Message Counts no longer show up when parsing a mailbox folder and don't get increased when copying or getting new mail. I need a way to do this without going through OnKeyAdded.
<I'll add this to the M6 release notes.> Does this apply for counts for news messages also?
Yes, though I don't think it will affect IMAP since I don't think they are going through that code path.
Here is the release note item I asked verah to include: "Due to optimizing performance in displaying headers (bug 7002), Messenger will temporarily not have the message counts show up in the folder pane when parsing a mailbox folder and don't get increased when copying or getting new mail. This also applies to News messages. IMAP mail may not be affected."
This is going to require some work from mscott, bienvenu, and myself. We've talked about this briefly, but I'm pretty sure this won't get done for M7 so I'm moving to M8.
Putting on [Perf] radar
Hmm, in today's (6/1) Win32 build, I'm able to see message counts displayed after I've selected my IMAP inbox.
It should be only if it has an .msf file. If you are actually parsing (at least on Pop), it won't show up.
Ok, I get this now. Here are the steps: 1) delete all .msf files 2) Start Messenger 3) Select a folder which contains messages. 4) The ??? status changes to 0 (except on Linux, where ??? remains). This is true even after the folder has been completely loaded. 5) Must exit and restart Messenger to see the message counts. But, like you mentioned, copying/moving/getting/deleting new mail does not update the message count. IMAP has this same problem.
We aren't going to be handling message counts for M8. Trying M9.
I hope we'll get this before Beta.
I still have a few more times I can put this off until we need to get worried :)

I put this back in. I hope it doesn't slow it down too much.
1999081009M9: Win32/NT4 It seems to be working better because the number Unread and Totals update after getting, selecting and deleting messages. I cannot verify this bug until the problem with copying and moving no longer crashes (bug# 11025 and 11418) Note: Need to upgrade my Linux system to 6.0. Mac is having problems displaying messages on IMAP which also makes it difficult.
Build 1999081608M9: Win32/NT4, Linux/Redhat 6.0, Mac 8.5.1 Verified Fixed. Tried deleting msf files, getting, moving, copying and deleting messages and message counts were updated. For News I retrived messages and the message counts were updated in the same session, without having to restart the application.
