Description Raphael Groner 2012-09-11 19:17:29 CEST
Sometimes there are -1 new and unread mails mentioned in the tooltip. The icon shows then the status "new mail available".

Please see attached screen shot.

I can imagine that it has to do with the delayed but automatically unmarking of new mails.

Is there a way to reproduce this?

Honestly, I don't know how to reproduce for sure. I guess that it has something to do with the delay feature to unmark new mails (see second part of comment #1).

Doing a resync with the IMAP4 server fixes the counter. So I reduce Severity to minor cause of available (but not nice usability) work around.
