Description of problem:
If you are reading email, and have one selected folder (say, inbox),
evolution 1.x used to display in title bar the number of unread messages.

As people tend to let their e-mail app open all the time, this was
useful, so you didn't need to switch to application to look for new
mail - just looking at window list would tell you so.

As of evolution 2, it simply says 'evolution', and you have to focus
evolution window to know if new mail has arrived.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open evolution 2
2.minimize it
3.look at application title on window list

Actual Results:  It displays "evolution"

Expected Results:  Something like "evolution - inbox(11) - or whatever
the folder and unread messages. Just like evolution 1.4's default

I think this may well have been done on purpose -

Comment 2 Sitsofe Wheeler 2004-12-28 20:24:49 UTC
Then again I've just turned up this too -

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
