How to receive a notification on new mail
To be notified on your computer when new mail has arrived, go to Settings → Mail Preferences and enable notifications.
You can either have:
- no notifications - leave this option disabled: you won't be notified if mail arrives in your Inbox.
- notification for all mail - set the dropdown to 'anyone'
- notification only for contacts - only mail coming from your contacts will trigger a notification
- notification only for pinned contacts - only mail coming from your important contacts will trigger a notification
You will need to have your browser open to FastMail in order for notifications to be triggered. Note that not all browsers support notifications; currently Internet Explorer does not have notification support.
