Status can be used to just update the message count and it's quite
efficient (at least with cyrus as a server). IIRC thunderbird uses it
to quickly update the folder tree view.
OTOH claws just recurses the subfolders (downloading headers while
checking) and it is dog slow, to the point that I disabled the feature
and I just select the folders when I want to check for new mail.

It is if you filter server side.
