Today in the morning I have compiled git-version 0cd7d39 and this version is running since that time. So, the whole day gmailsniffer tells me, that I have 20 unread mails in my account, when I am hovering over the systray icon.

When I select "Show sniffer" the windows displays 20 messages, always the first one is marked with a red envelope, the others are marked with a blue envelope.

When I check the emails with claws-mail, I have 12 unread mails, if I go to gmails web-inbox I find 9 unread conversations.
Why will gmailsniffer display 20 unread mails?

I cant see any problems, all emails are correctly counted and displayed.

if the email has inbox & custom label it will be shown as new email once in your custom label and once in inbox count. That is the difference i can see here.

you can always check directly

https://username:password@mail.googl.com/mail/feed/atom/unread

let me know what will be the count in xml.

PS. The red gmail icon represents the latest email.... just an eye candy.

I found out, that I am lost with googles memory, which I will have to clean up first.

gmailsniffer displays the XML-file correctly. Sorry for the noise.

As I saw, you are retrieving the information about new mails via https (https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom/unread).

I will have to enter the user credentials (user anme + password) once in the settings dialog. Where are the they stored?

If I select "show sniffer" a notification area will be opened, that displays all unread mails. Clicking on an entry will open the default browser and I will have to enter my user credentials again. Will it be possible to parse them from gmail sniffer to the browser to access gmails inbox directly?

Your credentials are stored on ~/.config/Katropine, password is encrypted.

At the moment you have to have a cookie in your browser so you can go directly to your email from GmailSniffers main window, it is a little paranoid
approach.
