Yes, `\Recent` really only works for so-called online IMAP email
clients. What MailMate shows is the most recent count of `\Recent` flags
enabled for emails within the mailbox. But servers don't really tell
MailMate when these flags changes (like they do for other flags). And I
won't also rule out bugs, but it doesn't matter much since the solution
is to get rid of it in MailMate (and see what I can replace it with as
you have requested).
