just updated win 10 from an earlier version of same - not sure on version numbers but update is anniversary version
eM Client worked flawlessly on old win 10 - new mail showed notification icon on taskbar was 100% reliable
new update of 10 and eM Client has a mind of its own - had mail 5 minutes ago - no notification icon on taskbar - had to reset password to post here so a mail for that and icon showed
checked all settings and gone back to earlier build to double check and everything is the same - is this a known problem?
We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but if things only got messy after a Windows update and work well now that you went back, it doesn’t sound like an eM Client issue.
you miss my point or some of it - em Client worked well with the original win10 release - they [Microsoft] have now updated to the anniversary build and thats broken eM Client in that the notification icon on the taskbar does not show 100% of the time - it did in the original build of win10
I agree its the update that has caused the problem but Microsoft are not going to care - so yes it is an eM Client issue in that your software no longer works as it should
That translates into:
“if you update your Windows regularly, we are not interested in your business”
In this case, we would start by checking your notification settings. Could you please post a screenshot of Menu -> Tools -> Settings -> General -> Notifications?
there you go - it makes little sense
I had a mail 5 minutes before yours - the 1st did not show a notification on the taskbar - the one from you did - that’s the pattern
the settings are exactly the same as the install on the earlier version of windows that worked 100%
I also note that my new mail notifications no longer work.
is this problem anywhere near being solved or do i need to look for an alternative email client
I found that somehow, the two bottom settings had been checked (although I certainly don’t recall doing this). After un-checking them all seemed to work fine. My apologies for not sharing this earlier.
hi Jay - interesting but if you look at my screen grab above i dont have the settings you circle - what version are you using and is it the paid for version or the free one
maybe i dont have something set correctly - off to check
I saw that, but I thought maybe it was just a screen capture issue. Looks like the check boxes are cut off, but the menu option is there?
Try this-- go to this menu item at check Disable notifications when full screen…" Then press tab, spacebar, tab space bar. The uncheck what you checked above.
well i found 7.1 beta today and was hopeful but - no - just the same
what i have noticed on 7 and 7.1 is that the icon does show on the taskbar for a short time - 20 sec or there abouts - it then disappears - i have checked every setting in 10 and emclient but can find nothing wrong
just found this old thread that i contributed to 2 years ago - looks like Microsoft have broken this again - its worked fine but again the mail icon is disappearing after 20 secs
