Mail.app mailboxes require a click to update
Authored by: the_webmaestro on Sep 07, '04 02:55:17PM

One reason I've found, is that Mail.app mailboxes appears to require an occasional click to update its content. It's frustrating, but often I have found that one of my mailboxes has received mail, but Mail.app doesn't alert me to this fact. I've 'watched' my mailbox drawer all day, only to find that I've received a msg but Mail.app did not make the box 'bold'. I've got "Check for new mail:" set to "Every minute" but that only seems to help for the InBox. I've got rules which places mail in sub-folders, and those don't update unless I click...). I also have "[x] Automatically synchronize changed mailboxes" checked.

I switched to Thunderbird (only to switch back), because I want the interaction with iApps (namely Address Book) more than I want an updated mailbox list. I think Thunderbird is quicker, though...

This hint would help to an extent, but I don't want to have to re-export/import every time I add a contact.

In any case, Mail.app keeps getting better, so I like taking advantage of the improvements...
