Email Program With Notifier?

rosethymeFebruary 19, 2012

Does anyone know of a good, safe email program that has an email notifier? One that appears on the desk top to show incoming email? I just read that Incredimail isn't good to use and would like to replace it.

TIA

My Hotmail 'used to' notify me of new emails, but it doesn't anymore, however Windows Live Messenger got deleted off my computer a while back when I had the Operating System reloaded. I liked it when I had it.

Well please excuse my last post. I didn't totally check out the link I posted and it seems Windows Live Messenger no longer notifies of new Hotmails...sigh.

I just added the Webmail Notifier from Mozilla (at link below) and see that it doesn't work for me either.

I hope someone can help you (us).

Hmmm...maybe I need to check for updates? I'll be back if I find I can get it working.

Well I got it to work. There is a small letter box in the search toolbar and it is gray if there is no new mail. When you get new mail it turns yellow and shows whatever number of new emails there are. There is also a brief pop-up at the bottom that makes a small sound (beep) when the mail comes in.

Once the add-on is downloaded you have to go to
tools
add-ons
Webmail notifier
options

Use the dropdown box to choose what email you are using...like Hotmail
and then below that fill in your hotmail email addy next to "user name' and fill in your Hotmail password and ADD. There are some other settings you might want to play with too, once you get it up and running. I don't really understand them and what they do, or don't do.

I know there was a firefox addon you could get that alerted you of new gmail. I am so used to my android phone and tablets they all alert me to both hotmail and gmail.

Go to google and do a search for email notifier you will find several free ones, gmail does have one available.

For a long time I have used the 'PopMan' program for an email notifier & previewer with my Hotmail & other email accounts too.

For those who use the Opera browser, the built-in mail client/rss reader has a notifier as well (on by default but can be switched off).

I use Thunderbird email. It has a "pop" sound and a "letter" icon on the quick launch bar when there is new mail. There may be other alert choices; I haven't bothered to check.

Also use Yahoo, no alerts that I know of.
