mail-notification doesn't handle Thunderbird Inbox correctly
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:45 EST
Description of problem:
mail-notification doesn't handle Thunderbird Inbox correctly. It only detects if
the Inbox has mail or if it is empty after a "Compact" operation. Thunderbird
leaves mail "in place" after it is read but changes the status:
Fresh mail has status:
Read mail has status:
And deleted mail has status:
Mail-notification will not clear its status until a Thunderbird "Compact"
operation has been performed and the Inbox is reset to zero bytes.
Also, detected spam filtered to a Junk folder is "left" in the Inbox until
"Compacted", but I don't have the Mozilla Status code for that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup mail-notification to "watch" Thunderbird inbox
/home/dmobrien/.thunderbird/wpl6yglf.Dan O'Brien/Mail/Local Folders/Inbox
2. Send mail
3. Mail-notification icon flags new mail
4. Read mail
5. Mail is still flagged
6. Delete mail
7. Mail is still flagged
8. Compact Inbox
9. Mail is no longer flagged
This is most likely not Fedora specific. Please report it directly to the
upstream maintainer (see
so it get's fixed there once properly and for all distributions/users; Fedora
Extras will then integrate the new version when it's available.
