    I use Apple Mail and recently set it up to retrieve (sync) my email via IMAP. The one lasting issue I have encountered is that my mail rules automatically sort messages into folders (on the server of my email provider) but they do not show up as unread in Mail. They do show up when I click on the folder, essentially syncing it, but this means that I can miss messages for days. Is there a workaround that will still allow me to use rules to sort incoming messages into folders on the server and still have them show up as unread in Mail (or somehow notify me of their receipt)?
