Subject: A question about INBOX in IMAP mailboxes
Date: Fri, 07 Jan 2022 18:07:46 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I have a gnus installation where the select method is as such:

    ;;; Select Method
    (setq gnus-select-method
          '(nnimap "localimap"
                    (nnimap-inbox "INBOX")
                    (nnimap-address "")))

There's nothing special in the group parameters for the INBOX folder,
currently this:

    ((modseq . "6496")
     (uidvalidity . "1374073954")
     (active 1 . 2140)
     (permanent-flags %Answered %Flagged %Deleted %Seen %Draft gnus-forward gnus-download %*))

The group activation level is 1.

Mail splitting is currently being handled by sieve, not by Gnus.
However, when sieve leaves a message in INBOX rather than sorting it to
another folder, it does not appear in INBOX using `g'
(gnus-group-get-new-news).  Any mail that stays there does show up if I
use `M-g' (gnus-topic-get-new-news-this-topic) on the group.  Is these
anything that is special casing INBOX such that `g' doesn't display new
messages for the group?
