In reference to the thread "Feature request: rfc2177 IMAP-IDLE" I can
imagine, that sylpheed causes an event ('Execute command when new
messages arrived') after receiving an IMAP-IDLE with the foldername and
number of [new|total|unread] messages, so any (kde-) user could
implement a script which causes knotify to show a message on screen
if the foldername ! = <spam>
