New e-mail notifications does not.

In recent weeks I get no alerts, tray icon or the same sounds so I haven't changed any settings. I have been using Thunderbird for years and this machine for over a year, and yet I've had no problems until recently. I looked through the boards and there has been no solution that does not involve making sure that everything is checked, what I've done.

Anyone happen to have another solution?

Thank you!!


Assuming that in Thunderbird

   Preferences > General > When new messages arrive > Play a sound

has not been disabled by mistake and that you indeed have an IMAP setting, try to go to the "Config Editor" in the same way as before and search for "mail.imap.use_status_for_biff", then put 'false. '

This setting is said to take a little longer (maybe more so on older computers or slower internet connections).

What it does [1]:

"It causes Thunderbird select explicitly each folder to be updated summaries of message, rather than using the STATUS command." It has more load, but some IMAP servers return the STATUS correctly. »

  • Hello.. .my new mail notification does not work on my iphone 6splus for outlook or gmail

    My outlook messages warn me not with the sound when mail is delivered to the Inbox.  Neither does Gmail!  They both have been configured to play sounds for the same thing.  Help, please!  Thank you!!

    HI sk108,.

    I understand that you are more alert audio audition for Gmail or Outlook on your iPhone. I know it's nice to be updated to new alerts without having to see your iPhone, so I'm happy to help you.

    To begin, check that you can hear other sounds on your iPhone and alerts. This article contains information on how to check that:

    If you hear no sound or distorted sound from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch speaker - Apple Support

    1. Go to settings > sounds and drag the slider to Ringer and alerts to increase the volume.
    2. If you hear the sound from the speaker, follow the rest of these steps. If you hear no sound from speaker, contact Apple technical support.
    3. If your device has a ring/silent switch, make sure it's set to ring. (If you see orange, your device is configured for silent).
    4. Restart your device.
    5. Open an application that has the music or sound effects. Adjust the volume with the volume buttons or the slider in theControl Center.
    6. Go to settings > Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth off. Then, check the sound back.
    7. Plug in a headset. If you can hear the sound in the headphones, remove it, then clear any dust or debris from making headphones to your device.
    8. If your device is in a case, make sure that the case does not block the speaker.
    9. Use a brush to gently clear all debris from the enclosure and lightning connector (or 30 dock connector pin). The brush should have soft, clean and dry hair.
    10. Update your device to the latest version of iOS.

    Make sure that you have also set up notifications correctly for each application. This article contains more information on this topic:

    Use the Notifications on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch - Apple Support

    If after this you still not hear these alerts, let us know if you hear sound notifications for your other applications.

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple. See you soon!

  • Adpatch function of e-mail notification does not work

    Hi all

    I'm about to apply a huge patch (12.1.1 patch) which will have at least 12 hours. When I was testing this before that I have answered the question about 'Yes' email notification and added my email address, but for some reason adpatch did not send email when a worker failed.

    How can I study the origin of this problem? Where adpatch reads information from the SMTP server of?

    Any comment is appreciated.

    Thank you

    You must configure the e-mail of the BONE - test telnet SMTP to perform according to them (how to perform a significant Telnet SMTP test to troubleshoot Java Mailer to Send Notifications by e-mail [753845.1 ID]). If you can send an e-mail message from the operating system, you should be able to receive emails from adpatch session.

  • alarm e-mail notification does not

    According to & cmd = displayKC & externalId = 1004070:

    The ability to send mail can be limited

    that the anonymous e-mail is not allowed or specific user accounts

    are required to send an email. If this is the case, that a rule must be created

    to allow the server to VirtualCenter email, because it is

    currently no way to configure authentication SMTP with VirtualCenter.

    1. is there an informal way to configure vCenter to send an email with authentication through the service console?

    2. is there a way to configure Zimbra to allow vCenter send emails without having to authenticate?

  • I can't use my e-mail address. He will ask for a password and said 'false '. So I applied for a new password, and now he tells me that my e-mail address does not exist. Sigh!

    I regularly use my Comcast email, but I can't send pictures to this topic. When I try I get the page of microsoft mail, but it won't let me do anything.

    It is said to connect and it says that my password is not good. So I requested a new password and a compound. Now, he tells me that my e-mail address does not exist.

    I thought that this stuff was supposed to be getting 'LESS' confusion.

  • hyperlink Google SOLVED calendar: create a new calendar [a Lightning does not appear in the Options]

    I downloaded TB 38, which incorporated the lightning. I want to connect Google Calendar, but say instructions select Lightning tab in Options and then file, add the new calendar. Lightning does not appear in the Options window. I have restarted Thunderbird since upgrading several times, but still no option of lightning.

    You do not connect a calendar in Google Calendar. You create a new calendar. In doing so, you select the option "on the network" and then follow the advice given by Matt to enter the address of your Google Calendar.

    At first glance it seemed to be disappointing and awkward. I had a lot of things implemented in the 'House' calendar, and given that it was not in the new calendar connected to the network, none of my existing stuff would be automatically shared.

    At the time, I started to use it, there is no obvious way to move items from one calendar to the other. One method would be to export an event to an ics file and then import it into the new calendar. I think now that if you open an event for editing, you have an option to select the schedule to record it again to.

    I don't know if the address given by Matt still works. See this:

    You can use Google provider if you need and then the address you use will be one such as described by Matt, but the entry point is always file | New | Calendar. Forget the Tools | Options of.
