[Centos 6 firefox OWA] How to get new emails notification from the tab or desktop?
Hi, me again.
I am using Outlook Web App in Firefox on Centos 6 as the replacement of outlook on Windows, and it is required. However, I could not find a way to make the new emails notification showed on either Firefox tabs or desktop, so that I can work on other tabs or applications.
To be clear, the Outlook Web App itself does notify me when there is new emails or new events, but I have to on its tab. I have experienced that missed some crucial emails cause I was browsing other tabs, and caused somewhat quite bad results (for me). As the result, I have to have a separate Firefox Window open on my second monitor all time just for the Outlook Web App. I am wondering if there is any way to solve it?
I have tried the Firefox add-on, tab notifier, but it does not work with the Outlook Web App in terms of the new email notification. I guess because the notification was popped inside the application itself...
It only works when the new mails are stay in the inbox (i.e. does not work if your mail rules move them to sub-folders), but it is good enough to me. I just copy it to the sub-folders to "look pretty". Since in fact what I really use mostly is the unread filter and manually searching filter for my email piles.
