From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (WinNT; U) BuildID: Need to bring back the Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Send mail to 6.1 user with browser open but without Mail being open Actual Results: Mail arrives but you don't know it till you go to your inbox. Expected Results: 4.x users would expect to see a clickable icon / flag appear showing that mail has arrived, which they can click to open their INbox. This is a standard mail package feature that especially for ISPs will result in tech support calls from users who think their mail isn't arriving.
This is an RFE (RequCinfirming. Leaving severity as normal as this is 4xp, not RFE. I'm not sure about the Platform/OS. Wasn't the email notyfier a Windows-only feature of NC4.*?
Bugzilla made me sound like an idiot, who contradicts himself 100%. Sorry about that. I changed my mind and actually deleted the original text. Please ignore the first sentence of my last comment. Netscape 4 parity bugs are not RFEs. Full stop.
> Wasn't the email notyfier a Windows-only > feature of NC4.*? If I recall, you would see this on the Mac too in 4.x (assuming you were logged into the mail server in that session). It would cause the application-picker menu (far right of the menu bar) blink annoyingly indicating you have mail (if you were in a different app). There was a icon on the tool/taskbar within Communicator windows that would change too. This indicative icon was also featured on unix.
moving to future milestone.
