In some cases (I guess when the mbox was left untouched?), it
defaults to selecting the top message. When this was marked unread
and (once again, I guess) it takes longer to open the next mbox, it
just seems that this is enough to consider the top message as read.
?? Balsa marks a message as "read" only after displaying it. If
"Automatically view message" is unchecked, it just scrolls to the
first unread message, but if that option is checked, the message is
displayed and consequently marked as "read".
This is really bad as it could mean not noticing new mail has
arrived in an mbox. Any ideas how to cope with that?
Uncheck "Automatically view message"?
Ooops... yes, that did it!
However, I'm not really sure I want to shut off auto-message view
completely. Usually I don't shut balsa down, so it normally keeps
running for days. When manually opening an mbox, "Automatically vie
message" really is a useful feature. It's just when cycling through the
remembered-open mboxes on start-up that it becomes a nuisance. Would it
be possible to implement an option that disables this feature for just
the program start-up?
