Mozilla should update the unread/read message count in the left upper folder panel after the first connecting to the imap server. this should be a enable feature for account because some imap server need long time for this function like uw-imap. This should be also started by a Menu entry like View -> Update message count
Reporter, do you mean that it should update the unread and total counts for all folders on the IMAP server and not just that of the INBOX?

sure if your mailbox setup uses filtering like procmail, you currently never sees if a new mail is in a subfolder. you have to select all mailboxes to update the messagecount for the selected one.
yes! this is exactly what I need, but this may be a dup of 61428. I read my work email at home and at work and filter extensively. And whenever I switch between home and work, I have to click on every single folder to update the message count. Otherwise, as I read my mail I find folders that appear to be empty have mail, and folders that look like they only have unread mail, actually has read mail, and folders that appear to have unread mail, are empty. Very annoying and makes it difficult to prioritize what mail to read first.

I take it back 61428 is dealing with problems when you have filtering set up on the imap server. do we have a target milestone for this feature? I'm sure it's too late for 0.9.4.

I think we currently have problems with newsrc and *.msf files (right?) scattered around the app. The problem is that we sometimes do not write the count to these files. cc bienvenu
this has nothing to do with the newsrc file - the reporter wants us to query the imap folders on the server for their counts and the solution for 61428 would solve his problem too (though he only wants it to run once at startup of the client, I would guess).
There has to be a compromise between the current situation of "only check the inbox until the folder is selected" and the extreme of "check them all and keep checking them". I do quite extensive filtering, with the volume of email my work generates thats essential. Unfortunately even though mozilla is set to check my IMAP account for new mail every 10 minutes I only see new messages appear in my inbox. Messages delivered elsewhere remain invisible until I actually check the folder manually by selecting it. On the other hand there are folders that accumulate a lot of auto-generated informational emails that I dont need the extra overhead of monitoring - its enough to go and look there when I think theres a need. My preference would be for a per-folder option to say "Include this folder in checks for new mail" - something akin to the list of "incoming folders" you can set up in pine :)
First ever bugzilla entry.. do I get a prize? Anyway.. Switched over from evolution, which provides a knob for this. I strongly support the idea of adding a 'check for messages in subfolders' knob. My mail filtering is handled server side, and mozilla never bothers to look for new messages in subfolders.
