When you set up filters to move messages in KMail it will not mark them as 
read unless you specifically tell it to.  Therefore, every folder that 
receives new messages will have the number of new messages showing in the 
folder list.  I find that it really helps to have the unread number 
immediately after the folder name.  How you do that depends on the version of 
KMail that you are running.  I'm fairly sure that it used to be an option in 
the View menu, but it doesn't seem to be there now, and I can't remember where 
I did set it.  Hopefully Ingo will notice this and remind us where the setting 
is.  The attached shows you what I mean.

If you use this method, then setting the folder to hold replies will do it 
automatically for you.
