Right - I shortcutted the technical details, but to the end user, it's
easier to understand. Really, messages live in new/ only until some
mail reader has *seen* them, after which they move to cur/. "Seen" is
not the same as "read", but I think that kind of detail isn't what the
OP needs. For more information about the Maildir spec, see:
