Using PopTray just as a notifier

Post by bugmenot » Wed Nov 14, 2007 9:10 pm

Can PopTray be configured to not download messages at all?

I prefer just to use it to notify me of new messages.

In PopTray on the ADVANCE OPTIONS, if you unCHECK the box for RETRIEVE BODY WHILE CHECKING, PopTray will never download messages unless you use PREVIEW.

In normal operation, PopTray retrieves only the HEADERS and then notifies the user of new emails. The user can see the info for each email on the MAIL TAB of each account.
