No

If there is a new message in a sub-folder that is
collapsed into its parent, there is no indication that
there are new messages. Example -

Inbox
- Parent Folder
Sub Folder (1)
Another Folder (3)

When collapsed, it looks like this -
Inbox
+ Parent Folder

It should (IMHO) look like this -
Inbox
+ Parent Folder (4)

    That's quite a reasonable idea, though it might get a little
    confusing
    with Courier and Cyrus where the parent folder can
    contain messages of
    its own as well.

    I think that as an option, this would be a great idea.

    I agree that it could get confusing. An option would be to
    use some sort of ":" notation (0:10) would mean 0 in the
    high level folder but 10 in the sub folders.

    The above example could be -
    + Parent Folder(0:4)

    or if Parent folder has messages,
    + Parent Folder (1:4)

    Or something along those lines.
