Re: [Evolution] Sent folder is now bold and displays message count

well, go ahead and display the message count if you find it so
important, but i for one think bolding the folder is just unnecessary,
and implies unread-ness, considering that is what bold means in the rest
of the tree view.  while ui decisions often cause people to whinge and
bicker about what's 'natural' (none of this nonsense is natural at all),
you can eliminate confusion by being consistent.  bold is used in the
tree view to represent unread messages contained in folders. (and also
to represent logical section breaks, but that is not relevant to this
conversation).  it makes the most sense to keep it that way.

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

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.
