When logging into an IMAP mailbox, only the INBOX is checked for new mail; I have server-side mail rules that filter my email to seperate subdirectories before any mail client checks the mail. As a result, Mozilla doesn't know there are new messages in these subfolders (as it didn't see them in the inbox, then use its own filters to move them into a sub-folder). Meaning I can have hundreds of new messages in a sub-folder in my mailbox, but Mail/news onlly displays new mail in the INBOX. It would be quite nice if mozilla would recursively search inside the sub-folders for new mail as well the INBOX when it checks for new mail.
