BeMail: New mail? Where?

Contributed by: Anonymous
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

The scenario:

A piece of SPAM arrives in your Inbox and you delete it without reading it. Later, you notice that the mailbox icon in the Deskbar indicates that you have unread mail. You open the Inbox, but there’s nothing there.

The reason:

The system is finding the unread mail in the Trash. To satisfy the background query which is causing this, you must either read the message or empty the Trash. The mailbox icon will report that you have new mail, WHEREVER unread mail is on your system.
