I suspect any change would confuse you.

Insulting users is a pretty poor thing to do.  It doesn't matter if
you're in a good mood or not, or if you agree.

Well what do i do then?  Just leave it off?  And never have any count at
all on it?

I happen to agree with Scott here.  I just read the whole thread, and
now I see what he was saying originally.  I think his original
observation stems from the fact that most people are used to Bold
indicating new messages.  And since as you pointed out Sent never
contains Unread messages (which is right), it should therefore never be
bold.  That is all Scott is saying, and I agree.  Having the message
count for each folder is IMHO very nice though.

I haven't updated Evo since yesterday, so I don't see the issue yet, but
this is my input based on the descriptions in this thread.


No matter what happens people will whinge, especially if its a change
from what they're used to.

But the count and the folder name on the Sent folder are bold in the
latest snapshot so it looks the same as the folders which have unread
messages.  I find it confusing as well.

Its a sent folder, it will never contain 'unread messages'.

I just downloaded Evo ver 0.15.99+cvs10.05.08.08.

In the folder summary, my sent folder is now bold and displays a message
count.  I have no new messages in sent so it should not be bold.
