I changed my group buffer format and added %t whic, according to the
manual is

| `t'
|   Total number of articles.

but it gives me very strange numbers, e.g. in the Inbox of my gmail
account (synced via offlineimap) I get nearly 10 times the number of
actual messages. It is an local imap account. I checked the number of
files in the Inbox folder of gmail, and it is also only about 10% of
number shown for %t.

I also read in the info manual that it is only an estimate and the
liitations for nntp, but my backend is nnimap and I can therefore not

So my queestion is: is there a way of getting the number of mails from
the nnimap backend in the group buffer?
