Is the IDLE daemon more reliable than the polling? I've noticed in
Thunderbird that IDLE is not very reliable. Many times I've had folders
set to IDLE show 'x' new messages and when I click the folder there is
actually more new messages than shown in the count. I did some sniffer
tests to see the polling in action and sometimes I'll see cyrus indicate
to thunderbird that a new message is there and thunderbird completely
ignores the message. Maybe newer versions of thunderbird behave better
(I tested 2 releases ago) but if anyone else has seen this behavior I
was wondering if you tried IDLED daemon and it handled things better.
