It's normal behaviour. Many users constantly have unread messages, and they don't want that envelope to distract them.

Anyway, I'll add it as an option in one of future releases.

Changed in unity-mail:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Triaged

Sorry, but this is an error not a wish-list.
The messages indicator MUST change of color when some of its managed programs change of status. It's the standard. Please, read this issue of another notification program: http://code.google.com/p/android-notifier/issues/detail?id=163 and this Ubuntu wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MessagingMenu/

For the users that constantly receive new messages, if they don't want distractions, the solution is clear: they shouldn't use a notification mail program!!
What's the utility of a notification mail program that it notifies partially?

OK, if you prefer this.
Anyway, I have also promised that I'll fix it.

Changed in unity-mail:
importance: Wishlist → Low
