Watch Mail

I was excited with the idea of finally having a real time mail notifier on my top panel. But as always, i should have kept it for later as Watch Mail item on XFCE panel doesn't want to work, after i carefully put in all the required settings from TBird. After i fixed everything that appeared in the log, it just sits there and says no new mail. Nothing in the log. Any ideas?

Re: Watch Mail

Maybe you could look into ~/.xsession-errors if there are any related errors (like unable to connect).
But doesn't Thunderbird have a tray icon so you could leave it running and it notifies about new messages?

No, not 'out of the box' at least.

Re: Watch Mail

One I used for some time and I liked was mail-notification. I used it in Debian and its interface was a bit buggy but it worked well otherwise. But I thought it's more for people that don't have a mail client (I used it to open Gmail in the browser), although may be not.
My personal preference is Claws Mail and it has a tray icon plugin (much less bloated than TB, works better too but is more old school in that we have to set up all its configuration options).
