View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to disable new email notification?

June 1st, 2008, 05:43 PM

When a new email arrives in evolution, an irritating flashing envelope appears in the systray (at least, that's what that area is called in Windows, unsure what the gnome name for it is). I get a lot of mail & I want to read it when it's convenient for me and not have a blinking thing in my peripheral vision bugging me to read the mail Right Now - so I would like to disable it, but so far I haven't been able to work out how. Any pointers?

Ubuntu 7.10, if it's relevant.

Thanks ever so!

Open Evolution and select:
uncheck the plugin "Mail Notification".
This should stop the notification box from opening from the Panel (task bar)...

Hope this helps...
