Re: [Evolution] New mail in sub folders

I would like to third this idea, but with some ammendments.

The way I think this should work is as follows. Obviously this is only
important if you view your messages in a threaded format.

When you download new messages, messages that add to a thread _that is
open_, should also be visible.

Messages that add to a thread _that is closed_ should not appear,
however there should be some indication that a new message has been
added to the thread.  It might be suitable to use a bold or colored +
sign as Jason suggested.

Messages that are added to a single message (ie starting a new thread)
should automatically open that thread.

I believe new messages should be handled differently depending on the
state of the thread so that the display remains consistant.  Also, often
I will close threads I am uninterested in, and leave threads open that
I'm following.  The above method would save me the hassle of open
threads I'm following, or closing threads I'm not.  Regardless, it's
consistent with the state of the list, and it would clearly indicate new
messages in threads that are open or closed.


We have something similar to this for the message list view itself.

Does that work the way you would like (i can't remember if that feature
made the stable branch, it is currently in head though).

I have a question which may turn into a feature request.

Given the existence of a deeply nested hierarchical mail tree and
extensive filters on the incomming mail to sort it into this tree, how
can I determine where my new mail went?  The only way I have discovered
so far is to open up the entire mail tree looking for it.  Is there (or
can there be) a better way?

As a programmer, I am loath to suggest such a thing, but really nice
visualization would be to bold the mail tree from the root node (local)
down to the node containing the mail (e.g.
local/maillists/gnome/evolution).  I can only guess at how difficult
that might be.  But  you can't really blame a guy for trying :-)
