Count new private messages instead of the total number


(Sander Datema) #1

Now that we can send mail to groups, I noticed that every time a new message appears, I get a notice. That’s good. But the notice counts the total number of messages, in stead of just the new ones.

I’d rather have it say: 2 new messages in your contact inbox

What is your definition of new? (When does a message become not-new?)

Well, after I’ve read it I suppose… :slight_smile:

I agree with this request. A good deal of confusion among the mods at my site when we first saw this appear. We all though that stuff was forgotten. I think read/unread is a good flag to check when counting “new” messages. I don’t know of any messaging or email clients that tell you how many total messages are in your inbox…

I would like to try it out, and see how it feels. It gets a bit tricky cause you need to update that message quite a lot.

  • When users in the group archive a message
  • When a message gets deleted
  • When you read the message
