How to get notifications about new emails?

KMail - can't install it by Octopi, tried twice (some errors), while everything else (any other apps) can be installed.

mailnag is in the repos and works well.

Works well - can't say the same. There nothing appear (no windows, nothing) when I start it, only config windows opens.

That's correct, it runs in the background. Close the config window and wait for email to arrive.

I just sent mail to me - nothing. I filled fields as on example here.
Also tried account type - Gmail.
May be too soon (about a minute), how long did you wait till got message?

It's pretty immediate as it uses IMAP PUSH.

It's working for me - can you check the background task is running, e.g.

ps ux | grep mailnag

john 18992 0.2 0.5 524036 43584 ? Sl 19:17 0:00 /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/mailnag
john 19076 0.0 0.0 6272 2280 pts/2 S+ 19:21 0:00 grep --colour=auto mailnag

Hmm. OK, so it's running.

I suppose it's worth checking you have the notification plugin enabled, as all mailnag does is use something like notify-send to alert you have new email.

LibNotify Notifications is marked.
