Show the total number of messages in Mail mailboxes
Authored by: stevebr on Mar 22, '13 09:18:07AM

You can do something similar with different flag colours: Flagging a message creates a pseudo-mailbox that displays the total message count the way other mailboxes display unread count (on a dark background, flush right). Having more than one flag colour in use creates corresponding mailboxes, one for each colour, visible when opening the "Flagged" disclosure triangle. You can change the names of the flag mailboxes from the defaults to something more meaningful than Red, Orange, etc. the same way you change a mailbox name

Of course, you're limited to 7 different flag-mailboxes, and I don't know of a way to apply more than one flag to the messages (i.e. to make the flag mailboxes behave more like Gmail labels).
