Thread: SeaMonkey mail notification

  1. SeaMonkey mail notification

    Hello

    I have SeaMonkey check my mailbox every 10 minutes; if it dowloads
    anything new it puts a little notification icon in the taskbar and plays
    me a sound.
    But if all the new stuff is junk and filtered by my killfiles or the
    Bayesian filter, when I go to look the numbers show there is nothing new
    in the inbox.
    So I empty Trash and Undesirables (not sure what that's called in
    English) - but the icon still doesn't go away until I actually open the
    Inbox.
    Any way to modify this behaviour? - like only notify if something new
    is actually kept in the Inbox.

    Regards
    Christophe

    mine disappears when I click anywhere within the account. I
    could click on some folder I created, and it disappears.
    Even if I click on the trash can it disappears. I don't
    know about the junk folder cause I don't have one.

    Thanks for your reply. Even though it doesn't solve my problem I now
    understand it better.
    I have several mail accounts within the same profile: private,
    business, _very_ private ;-) ...and of course 'Local Folders'.
    All junk mail for any account is moved to 'Junk' or 'Trash' in Local
    Folders. I like to just glance at what has been filtered because my
    filters are draconian so I get a small percentage of false positives.
    (This isn't so illogical as it seems because my message size limit is
    set at 10k - so I only get a bit more than the headers, and then once a
    week I delete everything I don't want directly on the server without
    downloading it.)

    So even if I empty these Junk/Trash local folders, it doesn't clear the
    notification for the account the mails originally arrived in: I have to
    open that to clear it.

    Regards
    Christophe
