    This seems like it should be easy, so please forgive me if I'm missing the bleeding obvious.

    I like to sort my incoming email into folders, for example "Respond-Work", "Respond-Personal" (using the superb Mail-Act-On). Here's the crutch, how can I get mail.app to display a message count for these regular folders, like it does with Smart Folders?

    I've attached a screenshot so you can see what I mean.

    the only way to ge a number next to the folders is to have at least 1 email in that folder marked as unread. Mail 2.0 rules don't seem to let you do this (which is really stupid, they've missed some ridiculously common rules out) but maybe your act-on program can when it moves it to that folder... Sadly I'm not familiar with it...

    hope that helps

    Looks like this isn't as obvious as I thought it might be.

    I've been trying to think of a way to get this working, including searching for third party apps, all to no avail.

    Hmmm...

    I'm sure its not difficult to write an applescript that moves and 'un-reads' the email... but then again, I'm no applescript writer either!
