    Default notify when new mail has arrived

    Is it possible to get notified by popup and/or sound, when new mail arrives?
    I know from experience that a lot of users really want this.

    if a am correct, the unread count in the folder lists, only updates when you click on one of the folders.

    We will release a systray toaster soon that can do new mail notificaitons. Eventually we'd like it to handle mailto: links and calendar reminders.

    The folder counts will update on any server action. So clicking on a folder, reading a message, tagging a message etc.

    Actually, it updates on any user action that causes a call to the server. It also updates after 5 minutes of idle time.

    Another option is to use a POP or IMAP mail notifier. My personal favorite is PopTray.

    wouldn't it be possible to trigger a popup when new mail arrives?
    We are now working with Domino webaccess and this works that way.
    A systray icon is not platform independent and i think you should try to avoid it, but of course that is my opinion

    How about a SMS msg? That'd be great!

    That's not exactly in the product now (and our product management team will note the request), but there's a variant today: in the Options/Mail page, you can choose to "Enable address for new mail notifications:" There, you can enter another email address where you want to be notified -- and many mobile network operators provide an email address that's tied to your SMS number (such as 6502121212@messaging.sprintpcs.com)....

    Default Email Notification

    Another way could be sending an Instant Message, Implement a listner class and let it deliver all the new messages to the preferred IM account. Found an example about posting to yahoo IM's ...

    http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/20...-yahoo-im.html

    This can be used to send any kind of messages..

    my 2 cents

    I don't think it will make it. It needs some work to compile/work with the latest code and at the moment we don't have the cycles. At this point I don't think it will make GA.
