you need to _select_a_folder_
and then _fetch_mails_in_that_folder_ . the message numbers for each
folder start from 1 and increase. each mail also has a uid that
uniquely identifies it. i used to know some of this stuff!
when you fetch mails, each mail has properties like a dictionary or db
table. you specify which properties you want fetched.

for each mailbox, the EXISTS property says how many messages are there.
the message numbers of the messages change as the mailbox changes, but
the uids are only changed under certain conditions that can be engaged
with somehow (they aren't affected by moving the message, whereas the
number is)
