I am not sure I have understood this thread completely, but I am running 
dovecot/RoundCube.  If a folder has new messages, then it has a badge 
that is dark blue (with the theme I am using) with the number of un-read 
messages.  Otherwise it has a badge that is light-blue to indicate 
un-read messages only.  Folders with no badges have zero un-read 
messages.  So there is definitely a distinction for "new" messages.
