MailNotifier  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 9.3
by: jaliborc [More]

MailNotifier is no longer maintained on WoWInterface. For the latest release, check Curse.


MailNotifier is a small addon that has two purposes: tracking how many unread mails the player has in the inbox and alerting him when new mail is received (plays a sound and flashes the minimap mail button).

Features
  • Tracks how many unread mails you have
  • Alerts the player when new mail is received
  • No configuration needed

Limitations
Except when the player visits the inbox, it's impossible to know exactly how many unread mails he has. This is why Mail Notifier can only detect mails received while playing, and by comparing the mail senders list at login (ex: If you have 1 sender when you logout and 3 when you login, obviously you have at least received 2 more mails).
Notes
  • For feedback, support, suggestions and bug reports, feel free to post a comment.
  • A special "thank you" to everyone who helped translating MailNotifier to other languages.
  • And, if you which, consider donating. Anything is appreciated!

No, it only attempts to track how many unread mails you have and alerts when you receive a new one.
But there are plenty of lightweight mods that can do just that.

Ok, I'm back, so let's start answering your questions!

That information doesn't help much. The problem may have been caused by an older version which has incorrectly counted the mails before you updated to the new version. And, even if it is caused by a recent bug, that doesn't help to fix it.

Yeah, it seems that the mod is counting the number of times you open the mailbox and is displaying that. I discovered this when I saw that it said I had 64 messages, so I closed the mailbox, and when I reopened it, the number ticked up to 65 and the mail sound played. I closed and reopened it a few more times, and every time it would play the sound and increase the number by 1.
Ok, this information is something I can actually use. I will try to see what is causing the bug.

EDIT: I think I've figured it out. A new version is going trough a testing phase.

That is happening because MSBT_MailNotifier is out of date.

Fixed in the upcoming version. Meanwhile, you can type the following on the chat, and then reload the UI:

Code:
\run MailNotifier_SV.senders = {}

"Displays how many unread mails you have and informs you when new is received"

(It's different from thew current one, I know, but this is the next version description.)

P.S: When you translate new strings fell free to send me a private message, so I won't miss it.

This is great! It will be included right in the next version!
Would you like to be listed in the addon's page and in the credits as the author of the chinese translations or do you prefer to remain anonymous? It's the least I can do.

No, MailNotifier does not provides any LDB support, but yes, I have plans for it.
