hi there, I have multiple accounts setup with Aerc and it's working great (thanks). I have one little axe to grind though: it would be great if (optionally?) the account title could be decorated with the number of unread emails available for that account in the top-level bar. say: ``` accnt-1 (3) | accnt-2 | accnt-3 (+100) ``` where accnt-2 has no new unread email, and accnt-3 has more than 100 unread emails. would that be something doable/desirable for aerc? cheers, -s

Since I use inbox-zero approach, for me it would even suffice to mark the account tab with an asterisk or by using boldface. > would that be something doable/desirable for aerc? +1 on the desirable part. Regards,
Your first problem would be to track the message count in the first place... At least on imap the account only fetches messages from the open mailbox. On the notmuch worker you at least have the counts right and then it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Do note however that aerc is currently without a maintainer, so getting patches merged might be interesting. If you feel like it ping Drew in #aerc-dev on libera or via email.
