  1. Thank you (SM 1.1)

    Thanks to the developers and everybody involved in bringing us
    Seamonkey 1.1!
    I'm using it on the Mac platform and think it's great. The notifier in
    the dock is a great addition, but I also see a lot of other changes.
    Thanks again!! :-)

    Yes, if you receive email while you're not using Seamonkey the
    seamonkey icon in the dock bounces up and down and shows a green dot
    with a number in it indicating how many messages you've received.

    I think it's already set at default, but if not, go to the "Seamonkey"
    menu - "Preferences" - "Mail & Newsgroups" - "Notifications". Then make
    sure "Animate the dock icon" is turned on.

    Keep in mind that the dock icon only bounces if you *don't* have
    Seamonkey as the active application! So try to it out by switching to
    another application or "hiding" it from the desktop.

    That's a clear explanation. I'll try it!
    At least something new every day!

    In this case it's Seamonkey trying to tell you (while you're busy with
    something else): "hey, look here, you've got some new email!". It can
    do this with a sound (of your choice) and/or (on a Mac), the Seamonkey
    icon in the dock which jumps up and down along with a little green dot
    on top of that icon with a number indicating how many new messages
    you've received. I assume it works in a similar way in Windows or other
    operating systems that Seamonkey is made for.

    Just go to the menu I've mentioned and you'll find it.

    The bouncing notifier must be unique to Macs. Still have the little
    square box that pops up. No "animated" selection is found in my
    preferences.

    Yes, I think it's a function which is built into MacOS, because I've
    seen it many times whenever an application needs your attention (it's
    waiting for a response, an error message has come up or something) and
    you're doing something else.

    Ahh. My Dock is always hidden so I'll never notice that. My G4
    PowerBook always goes "BOOP" every time I get a message. This works
    quite well when I'm blasting iTunes through the stereo, and the screen
    is asleep.

    My G5 iMac plays a .wav of Special Ed from Crank Yankers saying, "I got
    mail Yayyyyy!"

    Nice stuff, eh?

    I've noticed the dock animation does not happen under all conditions
    where it would be useful.

    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=350341

    I haven't had a chance to retest all conditions lately, but it still
    doesn't happen, for example, in the all windows closed case. I'd
    appreciate some confirmation on the bug by others, even if just for
    the all SM windows closed or minimized cases.
