Just a quick 'me too' point to note that Rainer isn't the only person 
doing server-side filtering.  The STATUS enhancement would be quite 
helpful to me as well.

Additionally, folks using client-side filtering are likely to be bitten 
by this occasionally, but not often enough to figure out why.  Anytime a 
desktop/laptop mail client checks mail and filters it to a folder, but 
the user doesn't immediately read it... those folders won't be listed as 
containing unread messages when the user next checks mail in Modest.
