Receive a notification on new mail in FastMail

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 
  • 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.
