> Public bug reported:
> Binary package hint: thunderbird
> Long time devotee of Thunderbird.
> I just switched to Ubuntu 8.04 from Vista/SP1.
> Now that I've switched to Ubuntu, I've noticed that the little
> red/orange asterisks that appear over the "Inbox" icon and the "Local
> Folders" icon (indicating new unread messages have arrived) don't go
> away when messages are read.
> The asterisks beside the actual messages disappear when the listing goes
> from bold to normal, but the asterisks still remain on the Inbox icon
> and the Local Folders icon.
> When I click on a different folder from the Inbox, such as "Sent" or
> "Trash", the "Inbox" and "Local Folders" icons lose their asterisks and
> the bold returns to normal.
> So basically instead of just checking all my messages and closing
> thunderbird, I have to check all my messages then click on a non-inbox
> folder then back on the inbox just to verify I haven't missed anything.
> It's not a huge deal but I shouldn't have to do it ;) And it is
> technically a bug so I can imagine I'm not the only one experiencing
> All the best and kind regards,
