Was that your original question? The answer is no. It will act in the
same fashion as a Mailbox folder -- the unread count is visible. This
count, BTW, is maintained "per user" not "per group".
If you want some action to take place when something happens in the
folder then you can try using a Folder Assistant or an event script.
