    Annoying Email Notification (Thunderbird 1.0.7)

    I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2 and Thunderbird keeps displaying an envelope icon in the notification area which tells me I've got a new message. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this?

    Thanks,

    Chris (Hunt)

    Thanks Howard, I wondered about that but it isn't checked.

    Checking through Bugzilla there are several bugs reported about not being able to turn off the envelope icon in the notification area.

    One work-around will be to set the envelope icon to "Always hide" in the taskbar preferences. (Right click Taskbar, select Properties, on Taskbar tab click customize)

    Thanks for the replies, I'm settling for the always hide solution which I do with one or two other icons. I wonder if this bug will be fixed with version 1.5.

    It will not be fixed in 1.5
