Balloon notification

Oct 14, 2011 at 8:30 AM

Instead of an email notification, can you make it show a balloon notification in the tray?

Currently this is implemented as a Windows Service which should not interact with the desktop, because it has to assume there is none. 

I would have to write a separate desktop program that would display a message in the tray. Right now I don't have the time and also I don't like tray notifications. The current way also works if someone else or no-one is logged on.

Well OK but if some PC doesn't have internet access, email option is useless. A balloon notification would provide *local* notifications. Tray ballon notifications can be set to hide the balloon or the hide the icon too so those who don't like them can turn them off.

Okay, so I wrote a basic Tray notification app which is now part of Version 1.5.  I haven't tested it very much but you can give it a try.
