IMAP mailboxes are a bit more of a problem. IMAP servers have a mechanism for detecting changes, but the overhead (a STATUS request) is essentially the same as checking the mailbox, so your best solution is probably to check "Check IMAP mailboxes" and uncheck "Check INBOX only".

That wasn't the most helpful response, was it? The save/restore stuff can be changed to avoid saving counts for IMAP mailboxes. Then it's the user's choice: check only INBOX, and have blanks for unopened mailboxes, or check all mailboxes and live with the overhead.
