           Summary: Notification does not happen, if claws context is
                    within folder mail is received into

Say I have 2 IMAP folders - from an Exchange server if it matters.

"Inbox" and "Helpdesk"

The exchange server itself is filtering messages to individual folders. Most
messages I get go to Helpdesk, because I work a helpdesk.  A few others go to
Inbox, which are also critical notifications. 

I require to be notified of _both_ if Claws is not foreground, via the
notification area, a beep, libnotify...eg, the ways that the Notification
plugin normally notifies me.

The problem exists that if I have the current folder of Inbox selected, all new
messages to Inbox fail to cause a notification.

Further, there is no indication whatsoever if Claws is not visible in some way
that I have even had new email.

I've missed countless helpdesk tickets for HOURS because I have failed to set
the context of Claws' folder selection treeview to something useless - like the
"Mailbox (MH)" "Inbox" subfolder.  This gets 0 messages - they all come via

But as long as the new message arrives in a different folder than is currently
selected, Claws notifies me.

How can I get notifications for ALL emails, regardless of application folder
