--- Comment #3 from Ray Kiddy <ray at ganymede.org> ---
I am sorry, but "Display->Summaries" did not strike me as being relevant for
this issue. I thought "Mail Handling -> Receiving" was more relevant. I have
been using e-mail for a long time and it has never occurred to me to call the
message list a "summary list".

And the "Set default selection when entering a folder" does not seem right,
either, even when you say that that is the option, and even when it works. I
mean, I am not actually entering a folder. I am already in the folder. New mail
is entering the folder. So....

I will, next time, ask the mailing list. But these options are sufficiently
mis-labeled that I would call this a bug. There should be an option in 'Mail
Handling -> Receiving':

Selection upon receiving mail:

   ( ) Leave selection unchanged

   ( ) Select newly received mail message

Again, I am not entering a folder, so the preference you describe does not make
sense. Yes, that might be what the implementation suggests, but users are not
reading the code base.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
