During check for new mails or changing active folder flags of all mails are refetched. This is useless, provided there is only one active mail client session for a server at time, thus the flags cannot be changed in between. The useless flags retrieving can last minutes for large folders on low bandwidth connection, which is unacceptable.

I've fixed this (hardcoded disabled refetch) but I'm looking for your suggestion, where to place the corresponding option (accessible in imap.c), to enable refetch for users, who access their mail server simultaneously from different (web-)mail clients.
