    4545This is not trivially solved as the mbox/mmdf driver doesn't care about what the other code appends to the folder (possible some copy routine). But it would need to inspect it in order to tell whether the there's at least one new message for the new mail flag. The easiest way was if we had an append method that passes the required info from HEADER down to mx driver. Right now, appending to mbox is cheap as we simply seek to the end and return the FILE pointer for appending (i.e. the mbox code itself doesn't know whether the message is new or not). Maybe we need something like `mbox_commit_message()` as other driver have (which would have the benefit of a cleaner mx API).

    47 This is likely to trigger some complaints by users, too, I think because it changes well-known behaviour for mbox.

    51 This is consistent with the fix in [7d7976cd4fc4]: as FCC messages are known to the author, they're aren't new and thus shouldn't raise the new mail flag. However, there's at least one report in `<20090701212335.GA3857@cefeid.wcss.wroc.pl>` requesting the old behaviour for mbox/mmdf. See ticket #1896.

    63 For people who keep new messages in their mailboxes (thus, having $mark_old unset), `set check_mbox_size=yes' might be a working workaround to bring back the old behaviour.
