I am using the xfce mail watcher applet wihtin the xfce panel. My folder structure of my IMAP account looks similar to this one:
So, I want mail watcher to check for several folders. But I don't want it sum them up and only telling me how much mails are new at all. Therefore I set up multiple accounts within the mail watcher preferences. One of them I called inbox and it should only look for new messages in INBOX. That works fine.
But my problem lays with the other folders. Assume I took an account called Sub2 and for this one I selected the subfolder2. Now mail watcher looks for this subfolder in special. That works, too. The problem is that I can't tell mail watcher to not look in the INBOX folder itself in this account.
To sum up the problem, imagine I would have a new message in INBOX and one in INBOX.subfolder2. As result mail watcher would show 3(!) new messages - one in the inbox acc, but also two in the Sub2 acc.
Sorry, but this just isn't something you're able to do with the plugin. Maybe someday, but I don't really have time to work on it much lately.
Ok, you can now deselect inbox, but that's the only feature out of this I'm implementing.
