If your client threads email messages then its pretty close to aDoes Agent thread emails?

I still prefer usenet feeds because my news reader only displays
unread posts and requires no management other than read and refresh

messages or threads with unread messages. Not sure if other clients
can do this as well.
I'm using Agent and it defaults to showing unread messages in red and
they turn black once read. At least mine does. It's been so long
since I've used the same customizations I'm no longer sure what I
customized and what the defaults are. :)
Can Thunderbird re-download old messages if you delete them? Since
Agent doesn't support Imap, the emails are via pop3. I thought Imap
in Thunderbird might allow you to set all messages as unread so
they'd download again.
TB displays unread messages in bold, then changes them to standard
text once they're read. If the thread is collapsed, then the fields in
the header are underlined to indicate the thread contains unread
With IMAP, if you delete messages in the client, they are deleted on
the server. So far I haven't bothered deleting anything since Gmail
gives you so much space. I just set the folder view to only display
threads with unread messages. I can always switch the view back to
"All" if I want to look up an old thread.
If you use gmail/IMAP with TB and delete a message from inbox or a
folder, it will still be inthe "all mail" folder in gmail. You can
subscribe (it's the default) to all gmail folders and retrieve an
accidentally deleted message that way. Alternatively, you can just ask
TB to show "unread only" and then not worry.
If someone is concerned about disk space, you can right-click the folder
in TB, choose properties adn then the "retention policies" tab. Set TB
to delete messages after 30 days. As I said above, they will still be in
teh "all mail" folder in gmail so you can get them there. I set TB to
unsubscribe all the "gmail" folders so I'm not cluttering my disk.
If I were a cactus, I wouldn't need so much water.
