Hi,

Sorry if this is obvious but it only happened to after i imported a lot of email
(via a local account), and never saw this before (using 0.8.10claws10)

I know that in front of a mail it's because of PGP but
what does it mean in front of a folder ?

i have many folders and it only happened on once , rather large foler: Linux-kernel

like this:

Linux-kernel(!) 0 3 12328

Thanks,

Philippe

Means that one marked mail has a new or unread reply.

Isn't this for threads you're "watching"?

Bye.

Someone told me that Emacs can do this all _and_ email too, go figure!

Well i've been able to remove the "!" sign by removing the only mail i had with a "Mark"
AND choosing "update summary".

I tried the other way around, that is, mark a message an selecting "update summary"
but no luck , i don't have any "!" sign in front of the folder.

Well, i almost never used the feature but with ML like LKML it is interesting to
mark a mail for further reference, that why i came upon this "!" sign.

thanks,

Philippe "still confused"

It seems I encountered the same strange behaviour. Unfortunately I didn't notice when the exclamation sign appeared. I used to look through folder with mailing lists this way:

while(there is unread message) {
if (interesting message) {
read all thread;
mark/mark with red color those messages that \
I want to find later easily;
} else {
Select thread;
Mark -> Mark as read;
}
}

When I noticed the exclamation mark, there were no unread mail in the folder already. After I did `Rebuild folder tree', the exclamation sign disappeared.
