I second this. I'm using a postfix daemon on all of my machines, which handles 
different mail sources and applies "adaptive" filtering. The postfix daemon 
appends all new mails to my mbox file. Balsa (git/gtk3 version) doesn't check 
for any changes of this mbox file (though configured to do so) or it doesn't 
show them - I can't decide which is the case.
So, I have to restart Balsa again and again.

Thanks for looking into it,
