Feature request - IMAP sensor add function only unseen mails



Is it possible to create a new function in the IMAP sensor which checks if the mail is unseen?

We use this IMAP sensor to check back-up log mails. If the subject of the mail contains 'Error' and the message is unseen the sensor must be in error state.

Currently thats not possible.

thank you very much for your feedback. I'm very much afraid though, this will not be possible, as the sensor marks mails as unread, when it parses them. This can't be changed.

best regards.
