I did my basic testings by sending email to myself (ny gmail account).
That works as expected with my other MUA (Thunderbird and I'm posting
with it right now).

I took a look at my other folders in my gmail account and found them !
they're all in [Gmail]/Important forlder... I've no idea why gmail put
them here though.

And alos I missed them because currently Claws doesn't show me that
there're unread message in this folder because it's not currently
visible from the folder list and its parent folder [Gmail] reports 0
email unread. It looks like this if I expend [Gmail] folder:

 [Gmail]         0  0
    Important    0  4

Is there a way to have [Gmail] line reporting unread message ?
