Notification window does not show subjects / senders
Dear Sylpheed developer(s),
I just noticed something:
On the following picture:
the notification window shows the subjects and senders of the new messages.
But for me the notification window only shows "Sylpheed: X new message(s)" and nothing else.
Is this a bug?

I am using Sylpheed 3.4.1 Win32 on Win8.1 x64.
I attached "notification_window.png" as a screenshot to this post.
As you can see on that screenshot, the notification windows only displays "Sylpheed: 4 new messages" and nothing else/below that.
Whereas on your screenshot:
the subjects and senders of the messages are being displayed below the "Sylpheed: X new messages" text.

Ah, I see.
Currently the notification window shows subject and sender only with POP3 receiving.
It will be possible to show them with IMAP4 only when "Filter new messages in INBOX on receiving"
option is enabled, because normal IMAP4 new message checking just only compares the number of

Here is a patch that gets message subjects and senders for messages in other than POP3 accounts, for showing in the notification window. It works for me with an IMAP4 account, with the "Filter new messages in INBOX on receiving" option checked as Hiroyuki said. It should work with NNTP and local spool too but I have not tested those.

The patch I gave does not affect NNTP and local spool, only IMAP4. Here is another patch that makes it work for local spool. It does not depend on the preference for filtering being enabled like IMAP4 does.
For NNTP it looks like it would be a bit more difficult to implement.
