I chose to fetch recent messages because these are the ones that should
be added to the clients list dynamically. Of course the number of unread
messages will be passed to the client but this only happens if there are
 NEW (-> recent) messages available on the server.

To update the list dynamically with all messages (also read ones) that
are new to the folder is more complicated. This would require to find
out first, which messages are not yet listed on the client and then
insert them at the right position (according to the current sorting) in
the message table. This would be very cool but because lack of time I
decided to choose the easy way...

Just for debugging:
What does the server respond exactly on that request?
There should be a line like this.set_unread_count('INBOX', 5);
