Gnome Mail Notification - POP3 mail always shown as new?


I just tried Mail Notification 1.1.3 for Gnome. I've configured Evolution to leave my mail on the POP3 server after downloading.

Because there is always mail on the POP3 server, Mail Notification alwasy recognizes old mail as new.

Because of this, Mail Notification tells me I've currently got 149 new messages, the oldest is 5 weeks...

Is there a way around this?

- Except the obvious - to delete messages from the server as I get them in Evolution.
Which I don't think is a good solution.

Or, is there another program or Evolution-plugin which does the same job as Mail Notification should do?
