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MailNotifier is no longer maintained on WoWInterface.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

Unfortunately, there's no way to know how many new mails you received when you were logged out (Blizzard does not allow). It's only possible to detect new mails when you received them while you were playing or when you visit the mailbox.
The new mail sound hasn't played for you because no new mail was detected.

weird anomaly with Postal

There is one weird anomaly with Mail Notifier. If I use Postal to automatically open mail, the notifier does not go away after the last mail item has been read. I end up having zero items in my mailbox, but the mail icon does not go away. I usually have to reopen my mailbox a few minutes later for Mail Notifier to realize that I have no more mail. This may be due to how Postal or other bulk mail addons work. However, I thought it worth mentioning.

MailNotifier shouldn't be causing that, because it doesn't shows/hides the mail icon. It lets the default Blizzard interface to handle it. The only explanation I can find is an interference between Postal and MailNotifier causing a bug that screws up the Blizzard part. Have you received any bug messages?
Anyway, I will look into this problem and fix it soon as I can.

No bug messages - the icon just stays up. Opening mail a few minutes later usually corrects it. You can also clear it (the mail icon) if you open your last mail manually instead of letting Postal or another bulk mail addon do it. Thanks again for looking into this.

Have you tried to open all mail with Postal enabled and MailNotifier disabled? If you did, does the mail icon stays up? If you didn't, do it please.

The mail notification icon staying after opening mail automatically is an issue with all bulk mail addons, including Postal.

See the Postal addon author's response on this page:

I never used MikScrollingBattleText, but I can make a simple plugin for MailNotifier with such feature.
