Hi,

I get heaps of AppleTalk Reply Notifications each day and clogges up Mail a bit (Pushes some of my other more important emails off the first page and get forgotten)

Are there any tiny simple and neat looking email clients that could even pop up a little box on my desktop with the subject of the email everytime one comes through, so its all seperate from Mail.

Let me know of what there is out there.

Why don't you create a separate mail box for Appletalk messages and then create a rule stating that all messages from Appletalk get directed to the Appletalk mail box.

This clears up you Inbox and account mailboxes. :) (In theory I have only just set mine up to do it)

have a look at Mail.appetizer here:
http://www.bronsonbeta.com/mailappetizer/


Have a look at your incoming email without switching to Mail. Mail.appetizer is a plug-in for Apple's Mail and integrates seamlessly. The moment a new message is received, Mail.appetizer displays an onscreen notification window. It gives you a brief summary of the message, so you can determine whether the message requires your immediate attention.

EDIT: woops, already stated above! :rolleyes:

God damn it, just take exactly what I said and use it for your own devices, Feeze :)

I had said exactly that, only stating that you should use phrase-based rules so that only your thread reply notifications go to that folder rather than all ATAU emails (there may be some serous ones that you want to kepe in your inbox).

There are also Growl notifiers that you can get to display your new messages :)

EDIT: DAMMIT! Beaten on both counts :(

One of the things that I do with the 'rules' in Mail is to have a special sound played when an e-mail from a particular source - one that I don't want to miss - arrives.

Cheers,
Andrew

Mail.appetizer uses as all Mail plug-ins do several of Mail's private internal methods. It has been tested with Mac OS X 10.3 through 10.3.9. Due to interface changes Mail.appetizer is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger".

I have about 10 seperate mail accounts setup in Mail. For business/personal and junk. Junk being those dodgey websites which sometimes require you to enter an email address to do things on them. Then some old addresses etc.

Im just a bit over having Mail bleeping at me everytime I get a notification from AppleTalk. I do like the notifications and do use them. Just be nice to have a neat little client seperate from Mail to do it. Thanks for ya help guys but not really what im after. Close though. I like the look of that Mail.appetizer but its still technically in mail.

Matt.

Oh I was, until Internet Explorer crashed during quick-reply. I'm at work at the moment and stricken with WinNT CLS4 - fun fun fun! The greatest thing is, Ctrl+Alt+Del - Explorer - End Task...that doesn't end the task, it just kind of asks nicely if it would like to finish what its doing. Give me force-quit ANY day, you know that great feeling you get when you know that force quit actually means "QUIT!"

Yeah, I'm bitter. At least I'll be granted some form of sanity when I migrate onto XP tomorrow.

Goodbye

The beta version (on their website) works perfectly in Tiger :)

Matt,

You could set up an Gmail account for Appletalk (I think they allow them)

Then you can download "Gmail notifier" http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-helper/index.html

This checks your gmails without downloading them. (you then access the gmail on you web browser)

You could then install the "Growl" network http://growl.info/ and the app called "gmail + growl" http://wafflesoftware.net/gmailgrowl/

Gmail + growl will display a simple notifocation telling you you have a gmail.

Growl can alos be used with other apps such as Mail, safari, itunes + many more :)

I have an address book entry for every forum I'm a part of. I have all of these as part of a group called "Forums" in Address Book. I then have a rule in Mail that says that every message from a sender in the group "Forums" should by moved into the folder "Forums".

I also have a group in Address Book called "Subscriptions" which has in it any newsletters or anything like that that I will read when I get around to it, but aren't from actual people.

Address book and Mail combined make for a powerful pair! Does anyone else do something similar?

I haven't gone down the path of creating an entry in Address Book.

Much like feeze, I think, I have a Mailbox for each forum and for each mailing list etc. I have a rule for each forum etc.

Your system puts all the notifications into one mailbox?

Yep, I have a folder called Forums, one called Subscriptions and another called Notifications.

The first two are self explanatory: the Notifications one filters out things like Bugzilla reports and stuff like that - not forum responses as such, but not newsletters either.
