Back a while I created an updated mutt package which builds upon the previous work with mutt-ng.
The package which I had constructed had two new features, well if you're generous. I guess there was only technically one new feature:
- The ability to cause the sidebar to only display folders with new mail in them.
- + Updated navigation to make next/prev work correctly with only new mail-containing folders.
I still hate quilt with a passion, but I've synced my patches with the current unstable Mutt - and there are now source & binary packages (x86 + amd64) in my apt-get repository for Etch. I can rebuild for Lenny if there is any interest. But it might take me a while to setup lenny chroots.
As a graphical example this is what you will end up with:
- The sidebar with all folders visible (the default).
- The sidebar listing only folders with unread messages.
OK I've tweaked the settings a little, but only a little:
# set up the sidebar, default to being visible set sidebar_width=45 set sidebar_visible=yes set sidebar_delim='|' color sidebar_new red default # ctrl-n, ctrl-p to select next, prev folder # ctrl-o to open selected folder bind index \CJ sidebar-scroll-down bind index \CK sidebar-scroll-up bind index \CP sidebar-prev bind index \CN sidebar-next bind pager \CO sidebar-open bind index \CO sidebar-open # Remap bounce-message function to "B" bind index B bounce-message # # Toggle visability of the sidebar. # macro index b '<enter-command>toggle sidebar_visible<enter><refresh>' macro pager b '<enter-command>toggle sidebar_visible<enter><redraw-screen>' # # Show folders with new mail only # macro index E '<enter-command>toggle sidebar_newmail_only<enter>' macro pager E '<enter-command>toggle sidebar_newmail_only<enter>'
