Hello everybody,

It just occurred to me that each time I receive a new email that a little envelope in the top right corner turns from white to green.

The only problem is that when the new piece of email arrives my PC doesn't say "You got mail"..... So I would like to turn this feature on but can't figure out how to... Does someone here know how it's done???

Thanks everyone!

What e-mail client are your system configured to use for this?

Evolution 2.28.3

Your email seems to be working fine. You do get your post, do you not. Evolution is set to turn the envelope green when new mail is received. That is normal. Whether or not you can also set it to say "you have post" I do not know.
Evolution is the program you use to fetch your post, and not your mail provider. Where is your mail account? Meaning do you use google mail or yahoo mail or what ever. This may help to solve the problem.

This has nothing to do with my mail provider and anyway that information you ask for is extremely private.

Evolution should say "You got mail".

Evolution should automatically be set to play a sound whenever mail is delivered to your inbox. It may not literally say "You've got mail," but it should be notifying you via sound when you receive a message. If you want to change what sound is played, you should be able to simply go to Edit > Plugins > Mail Notification and select the Configuration tab. From there, you can select a custom sound file to be played.

Let me know if that works for you.

A few people have complained that they can't get the sound to work despite the check being in the box. I gave up using Evolution when I couldn't make sound work either. If you find a fix please let us know.
