Live Mail notification.

Whenever I get new mail there is no new mail notification in the notification area.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello Elbeasto,

I get this every once in awhile. Usuall clicking on Sync on the menu bar (Alt+M) will refresh Windows Live Mail to see it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Brink, will give it a go.

No it's still not showing.

Just to be clear, I'm setting it as notifications only so when there is no new mail, there isn't any mail icone in the notification area.

Could this be something to do with using POP3 accounts? I do use my msn account with live mail but I have my ISP's POP3 account set as the default, (it's the one I used most often).

Double check your notification settings to see if it may be set to hide. Also in Windows Live Mail, check in Tools, Options, and that both Make Default buttons are pressed and grayed out.

Ok, notification setting is definately set to "Only show notifications".

In Live Mail one setting was not greyed out, the default news handler. I've made it the default mail and news handler now, both buttons are greyed out.

I'm not sure why you are not getting the same mail notification icon as the far left one below.

You might see if uninstalling and reinstalling Windows Live Mail may help.

With "Only show notifications" selected nothing shows in the notification area at all.

I thought I would see this icon with new mail.

If I have "Show icon and notifications" selected then I see the icon you posted there all the time and the one I posted with new mail.

Yeah, unfortunately that's the only way that it works. At least it's gone when you close the program though.
