Adam >>> Thanks for your advice. I'm afraid I may not have been very
clear, or may not be understanding what you mean when you say that mail
notification supports gmail separately. Perhaps I should explain my set up:
I have nine accounts set up in Thunderbird, and only three of them are
gmail. All nine accounts use pop3 (including the three gmail - I prefer
to fetch them by pop3 rather than using the web site); and only the
gmail accounts need ssl.
If I follow your instructions above, will this enable mail-notification
for all my accounts; or will it work with just the gmail ones; or just
the non-gmail ones?
Sorry if I'm being a bit thick about this, but I'd rather get it right
than make a mess that I have to unscramble later!
Thanks for your help
