How do I configure Thunderbird Unity integration, particularly the monitoring of selected folders?

The messaging menu tells me I've got new mail, but often that mail is in an archive directory or my drafts. Can I tweak the Thunderbird messaging menu in some way to tell it not to look for unread messages in Archive?

I wind up archiving a lot of unread messages. Without getting into the fact that I should probably just be throwing them straight in the Trash, is there a right way to tell Unity's launcher and message-menu indicator that it should only look for unread mail in my inboxes? It flags new mail in my archive folders as well as new drafts. I really don't want those flagged.
