Please add an option to disable notifications for new mails on a per folder notifications.

I was not able to find a native way to disable notifications for certain mails that arrive in a specific folder (in this case after a filter moved them there, but I also did not find one for messages that the server would have moved there).

Currently the only somewhat similar option is to not sync a folder at all. However this only works when the server is moving messages into that folder but not if a rule is moving them in there. Also it would mean that also the counter indicating how many unread messages are in a specific folder would not get updated anymore. Which is not what I want.

An example use case would be if you're subscribed to a high volume mailing list (like e.g. the linux kernel mailing lists) and want to look into them, but not be notified for each and every single new message as they arrive.

I'd like to extend this request. I'm using multiple mail accounts and I'd like to disable new message notifications for selected accounts.
