I did that, before I came to the list with my problem. I also went
through each and every folder, displayed all messages therein,
toggled all, and selected read.
In some folders this resulted in the newmail report changing. It
became closer to the actual number of unread messages displayed on
the mailbox tree and in the delivery folder. However, the reported
number never exactly matched the expected value. Also, when opened
a new instance of squrrelmail the delta between actual unread and
that reported by newmail was reset to the previously displayed
value. So, all of that work was for naught.
This was when I began to suspect that there was something else going
on. Which is why I brought it to the attention of the list.
The IMAP setup we have is Cyrus_Imap as distributed with CentOS-5.4
and there is nothing unusual about its configuration that I am aware
of. We do not have scripts that mangle delivered mail before it
gets into the user mailboxes.
I am not aware of any shared folders. I certainly have not set any
up and I doubt that the installation routine would do so.

I did exactly that for every message and while the delta between
actual and reported changed it did not entirely disappear. Further,
when I next started a Squirrelmail session, the delta returned to
its former value.

Anything that I have not revealed is unknown to me as well.

If I could answer that question then I would not be here seeking an
