I believe it's a feature.  It has never worked for me, and several
months ago even led me to submit to the temptress known as Evolution 
for awhile, just so I could see my mbox traffic show up without
having to click "get mail" (or whatever).

I'm now back with T'Bird.  Evo and I didn't get along very well.
