Thank you for a great plugin. However, could you please update it for Thunderbird 60?

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work (Thunderbird 52.8.0 32-bit) and the fact that there're no instructions whatsoever how to configure it doesn't help either.
Do not download it, it's a waste of time.

Actually it partially works: it will run an arbitrary comment if I configure it that way. But it does not show a bubble message when it is configured to do so.

Thunderbird did a dirty trick when my profile was damaged and auto updated itself. Now I find most of my addons don't work, and this is one of them. I've used it for about 7 years or so and found it very useful. The ability to have custom alerts for different accounts and folders (useful when using server side filters) and the ability to silence the alert for routine mail such as newsletters etc was invaluable. I hope it can be updated or a replacement arrives soon.

The star review is simply because it doesn't work (can't give it full marks when it doesn't work!), otherwise, it would get full marks.

This app is good for monitoring when your folders get new messages. After all, you don't want to have to scan all your folders to see if you have a new message.

However, if you get lots of email, like when you start up Thunderbird, you might get a dozen notices. The first 11 disappear in less than a second, so those messages are as good as lost.
It would be a lot better if a list of folders were displayed, and you could click to dismiss certain notifications or click to jump to that folder. The key is to be notified of all the new messages in the folders I choose.

Een prima add-on, maar ik ben op zoek naar een mail melder die ook werkt als Thunderbird is afgesloten. Thunderbird is een perfect programma, maar vraagt teveel resources om geminimaliseerd te houden. Een mailmelder die dat kan krijgt van mij 5 sterren.

Exactly what I needed. Works well so far and is way more reliable than Thunderbirds' own notifications.

Works largely well, but I keep getting notifications for messages I delete from my inbox, no matter what options I set for the account, the inbox folder and the trash folder. That's a bit annoying really. Also, the notifications are delayed by 2 seconds after a message appears in the folder view. Why that? No option to change that.

"delete on click" is a little dangerous, please add a delete button instead! Thanks!

Individual Email Alerts Dont Work:


This would be an extremely Brilliant Add-On, if it fully Worked.

WHAT DOES WORK:

OS: Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Seamonkey Version: 2.38

1. A Single Customisable Alert for ALL Email Accounts to use.
e.g. ALL/Any Email Account(s) successfully will alert via
a customised Audio .MP3 as well as the usual customisable
on-screen alert message (including custom picture file).

WHAT DOES NOT WORK:

Attempting to Utilise Independent Customisable alerts on a per-email account results in ONLY 1 of the customisable alert actually alerting for ALL email accounts.


Could somebody please get permission to fix this add-on, As i have multiple email accounts,
of which it would be preferable to have individual alerts on a per-email account basis.


I would recommend either FireFox Devs, or Seamonkey Devs take over to fix and/or
to incorporate this as a permanent feature of Seamonkey/Thunderbird itself.

RATINGS:

The Idea/Concept: 5 out of 5
Practicality: 2 out of 5

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.4). 

dev here, I tested this out yesterday and it seems to be working fine for me with the latest Seamonkey on windows 8. Are you sure you configured Mailbox Alert and not the standard seamonkey alerts? I realized that this may not be obvious; Mailbox Alert is not configured through the standard preferences/options window, but directly in the right-click popup menu for folders/accounts. See https://tjeb.nl/Projects/Mailbox_Alert/Manual/ for more information (I added a link to this in the addon description now, should have done that earlier).

If this is wrong and it is indeed not working as intended, please drop me a line and I can try to figure out what is going wrong.

FYI I do indeed not have much time for adding features, but the source code is available on github, for those people that want to add features/fixes.

Anyone who's ever used Thunderbird knows about the problems with mail notifications not working properly, which is a bug that has been around for donkey's years and looks like it will never be fixed. I've tried all the other "fixes" including altering the condstore and mail.imap.use_status_for_biff settings using the config editor, but they never worked either.

When I came across this little add-on my hopes were raised, but sadly I spent ages trying to get it to work properly with Thunderbird 31.5.0, but I couldn't. It's very sporadic and not much better than Thunderbird's own effort. The test settings seem to work, but that's about it. It also looks like this add-on is not the developers highest priority either; I don't expect things to improve in the future so I will probably have to uninstall it, pity.

There are a couple of other new mail notification add-ons but the best one I've found is called: "New Mail Attention" and that seems to work perfectly. It's a bit basic and doesn't have any sound or pop-up options, it just flashes and highlights the Thunderbird taskbar shortcut, but at least it does work 100% of the time. The obvious question is after all these years, is why doesn't Thunderbird's own mail notifications work properly; it's a very important and basic function for any mail program? Maybe the Thunderbird developers should have a chat with Giovanni Coriasco.

Was looking for a extension that could play a sound on a remote computer when my mail computer received a email in a specific folder. I used this extension to execute psexec. Next psexec calls nircmd on my remote computer to play a sound. Works perfect!

Doesn't seem to work at all, the custom sound isn't played, its the default sound each time I receive a new mail, I use latest Thunderbird 31.2.0 and I'm looking for a way to customize the sounds because I got 10 email address with different rank in priority, I have to know which one I get
