Sure, but I don't want too much "automatic folding"; I may forget about
those folders I don't read to often, and besides I really like to see
that long list of new messages and get an immediate impression of how
many messages there are, and an immediate image of how many to me
personally and how many to which lists.

That's my size too; and I don't have any problems with the subject prefixes.
Should I have?
