    Question thunderbird mail notifications in subfolders

    Hello,

    i use Zimbra via web and additionally with thunderbird.
    I have several folders in my inbox to organize incoming mails.
    That's done by zimbra mail filters and works well.

    The only thing, which doesn't work is the (automatic) email notification inside thunderbird, if there arrives an email which is directly sorted into a subfolder.

    Thunderbird shows only new mails in a subfolder, when i click on the subfolder itself - so i have to check all folders regulary for avoiding to miss an email.

    Each of the subfolders are subscribed.

    Does anyone know a solution for this matter?

    thanks & best regards,
    Thomas

    We noticed this too, and it got filed as bug 8431. As far as we can tell, this is a Thunderbird bug, and we're at a loss on how to work around it as well...

    I agree with Rob. I use Thunderbird almost exclusively, and I have filters dropping messages in to several subfolders. If you right-click on the account name in the folder pane, choose the "subscribe" option, then tick the checkboxes for whichever folders you want notification on, you'll get it.

    This is not a Tbird bug, unless you consider it a bug that a folder is not "subscribed" by default.

    I hate the idea of necroposting, especially this far back into the past; however Google pulls this thread up when searching for getting notifications from other folders.
    Obviously much development has happened since 2008, so many issues/glitches are no longer relevant; but here's what I had to do to get notifications for other folders.

    I had to subscribe to the folder, additionally I also enabled "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder" in the folder's properties.
    After that I started getting notifications from that folder. Because I absolutely had to know when I was getting certain messages I added an additional add-on as insurance. It is called "Mailbox Alert" and seems to be working for this as well.

    Again, sorry for necroposting; but this google result is second from the top. It only made sense to update it.
