As I say, it makes the folder title boldface. Otherwise there's no

No, it's different to making the folder bold.
The folder title being bold is determined by whether there are any
unread messages in the folder, even if the folder has been visited.
asterisk in the folder icon appears if messages have arrived since
folder was last opened.
Some examples below (and sorry for the HTML mail!).  My spam folder

So you can see if messages have arrived without remembering how many
unread messages you had previously.P.

I changed icon theme to the default Gnome one and I now see it. It's so
faint (light yellow on an off-white background) as to be virtually
invisible. Never noticed it before. And after changing it back to my
