Description Dan O'Brien 2006-10-09 08:10:50 EDT
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:
 X-Mozilla-Status: 0000

Read mail has status:
 X-Mozilla-Status: 0001 

And deleted mail has status:
 X-Mozilla-Status: 0009 

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):


How reproducible:

Every time

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
Actual results:

See above.

Expected results:

See above.

This is most likely not Fedora specific. Please report it directly to the
upstream maintainer (see
http://lefort.be.eu.org/ )
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.
