Some uses of this tip:

Know where Rules have moved emails

This is particularly useful if you use Rules to move emails out of your Inbox. The problem with doing that is remembering to look at the folders later to see if they have any new emails that need your attention. Use this technique to have a dashboard that tells you how many unread emails are in various folders that are important to you.
