For me it did. Until my net went down, as usually *growls at his ISP*
so I couldn't test it thoroughly. Hopefully will be able to give more feedback

Unless it's idling, just display status instead of numbers? In multi-mailbox 
mode I think you could just give up the "old" section and display just "new" - 
or display "new", and if none is found, then display "old" in a different 
color? (would be good to have 3 or 4 colors then: New, Old, Status and 
Delimeters (like /) (unless you make delimeters same as status)
Alternatively allow different fonts for old/new (i.e. *bold* for new?)
