App Icon badge on taskbar not updating until an inbox is selected (doesn't work with unified inbox unreads)


When the app is open, the icon on the taskbar should show the total number of unread messages.
Instead, it shows the number of unread messages in the currently selected inbox.
I use a unified inbox as my default view, but this does not seem to work with the app icon badge. I have to manually select a specific inbox for the badge to appear.

To Reproduce…

As above.
on windows 11.

  • Mailspring Version: 1.110-6

I have same problem. Also it shows unread count in selected inbox only if it is minimized to taskbar. I if close it by pressing “X” it wont show new messages in taskbar at all. I don’t know if it’s even possible to make it show notifications on the taskbar with it turned off.
