I have that setting for years, and as long as I don't access my
/var/mail/rhialto file through imap, it does what I want.
The referenced article upthread
( https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=28190829 )
isn't about mbox files but about maildir, and therefore what I see is
What I see in my mailbox is that new unread mails mails at first don't
have a "Status:" header, but after imap closes the mailbox, they have
The former state is shown in Mutt as "N", the latter as "O".
(New unread, Old unread) I suppose N corresponds to the yellow stars in
Although I can agree that the maildir situation would be a bug in Mutt,
(the "new" directory is there mainly for delivery-administrative
reasons, such as reducing contention) this case surely isn't. Changing
status of a mail should be done on command of the client, not by itself
by the server.
In the mean time, I am trying dovecot. It is doing exactly the same
