Description Jonathan Kamens 2008-05-06 07:44:36 EDT
In some recent update, mail-notification started treating deleted messages in an
IMAP inbox as new, but only some of the time.  For example:

1. The two newest messages in my inbox are read and deleted.  There are no
unread messages.
2. I receive a new message in my inbox.
3. Mail-notification now reports that I have three unread messages -- the new
one, and the two deleted ones.
4. When I read the unread message, mail-notification goes back to saying that I
have no unread messages, i.e., suddenly the deleted messages don't count again.

I have mail-notification-5.3-1.fc9.i386.

This is annoying behavior.

I've sent it upstream...
Comment 2 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-05-06 12:35:11 EDT
Is the example above repeatable?

Try to drop (temporary) mail-notification from the panel, then run it manually
from the cmdline with the `-i' option: "mail-notification -i". This should
provide IMAP session transcript, which I'll send upstream for further debug...

Mail-notification reported 1 unread.  Read it.	Mail-notification went back to

Mail-notification reported 3 unread.  Read it.	Went back to no unread.

Trace is attached.  Usernames, passwords, host names and domain names have been

Thanks for the log. I have spotted the regression (MN now improperly considers
messages which are RECENT but not UNSEEN as new). It will be fixed in 5.4.
