            Bug ID: 3482
           Summary: Revert Autosave Drafts being "New"
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.12.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Folder List
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: crxssi at hotmail.com

When composing a new message, Claws creates timed backup copies in the “Drafts”
folder.  But one "enhancement" changed the behavior to also mark/show those
drafts as being "New".

This change, while it might seem logical to some people, is actually very
confusing to others.  It has already caused a lot of support issues for my
department- people calling and asking why it is doing that, why they have new
Email, etc.  Even to me it is annoying, because it looks like I have new Email
and don't..... a timed backup really isn't something new, it is a special
situation.  If claws is killed or the system crashes or whatever, I believe it
detects this and will pull up the in-process compose window from the backup, so
there is no need to show it as new.

I propose the change be reverted or there should at least be a preference
setting for this behavior.
