I don't really understand what the archiving really does in thunderbird but it is kinda annoying.

Like if I get a email and read it. It will turn to read in my inbox, but will show up as unread in my archives section.

So the next time I get an email the thunderbird notification will popup and show that I have 1 new email but will show all those unread one in my archive.

So even though I read all of the emails in my inbox the next time I get an email I get a popup notification of 6 messages when it should be 1 since 5 of those where in the archive and marked as unread.

Anyone know how to stop this?
