Hi,

Have installed evolution 2.22.3.1 on Gutsy and I'm not getting alerts when email arrives.
I keep Evolution minimised but running at all times.
Tried installing a package of evolution plug-ins including mail notification from the gutsy repository but that hasn't done the trick.
Not sure whether it's relevant, but I upgraded Evolution from 2.12 to 2.22 by temporarily enabling the hardy main repository.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers,

Blair

I get my mail notications in firefox using these 2 addons

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1264

Means having firefox on the whole time but I do anyway.

Thanks, those look like they could be useful.

But the majority of my email comes via my ISP account - would they work for that?

Cheers,

Blair

Not a clue mate, but my ISP provider is British Telecom and they use Yahoo.
Try to find out if your ISP uses that or hotmail or one of the others supported in those 2 addons.
