I didn't work at folders yet. To differ between incoming and sent,
just query for {'Direction':'in'} or {'Direction':'out'}

NewMessage notifies about every message added to database. It's
emitted at boot when reading messages from db, and it's emmited after
adding message by Add method. It's also emitted on incoming message.

IncomingMessage notifiers only about new incoming message.

Add just adds message to default backend. opimd can't send messages
(and I don't know if it should, but that's topic to discuss by FSO
guys). So use Add to store sent messages or drafts.
