    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)....

    Can you explain how do you configure POPTray for zimbra?
    For Zimbra, I use TLS and POP over SSL and I have a timeout!

    Where is the problem?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    The problem is the 'standard' version of poptray doesn't support SSL (AFAIK), you need a plug-in. There's an example of a POP3 SSL plugin on this page - if that doesn't help then why not use the IMAP plug-in which does have SSL support? You will have to compile the plug-in, though. If you're only using poptray to check your new mail and then launch your mail client then it doesn't matter which protocol poptray uses.

    If poptray doesn't suit you there are dozens of free mail checkers that support SSL, have a quick search on google.

    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
