I don't wish to use the notification plugin - it doesn't work properly for me,

And I have the same problem with the lack of notifications of New messages from
gmail (from this thread: they're flagged Unread). I accept in Google's problem.

Couldn't a much simpler solution to this problem be to provide another variable
(say, %u) for unread messages in the same way that you already provide a
variable for new messages (%d) in the user Command to Execute after checking
mail in Preferences - Mail Handling - Receiving.

This way, you wouldn't have to barf at explicitly configuring anything for
gmail and would also be providing a genuinely useful additional variable for
the user Command to Execute that might be of use to more users.

This is what I prefer to use for notification anyway - just pop up a Zenity
window from a script that my particular command invokes after checking for
