What..?? ..I see that now. Has that always been there?  I remember
searching for this feature sometime ago. Then I thought that was what
"Subscribe" was for, but subscription made no difference.

Anyway TB still seems to do a complete download of the entire folder
first time you connect. Might be some in MUA spam checker or whatever.

That was quite some work, I have many filters and folders. But now I
have it working. (Had to leave Kmail again: After a week it stopped
showing the message content in some folders. The message preview just
stay blank - even after a logout/login)
