Is it possible to delay a notification?
« on: July 22, 2016, 08:23:01 am »
Hi!

I am using an imap account and all is working well. Mails are pushed immediately and all is fine.

Due to no (good) rule management on my mailserver, i have thunderbird running on a pc which is doing it for me. Most of the time, the mails are pushed to my phone before my thunderbird rules are processed and i am notified that there is a new mail.

My rules mark messages as read in most unimportent cases.

Is it possible to enter a delay for notification in AquaMail?
So i can enter a delay of 10secs - my thunderbird rules mark them as read - and the notification on AquaMail isn't fired.

Thanks
Walter

Um, no, sorry, don't think so.

Ideas for workarounds:

- Don't use IMAP Push, instead use sync every x min. So most of the time Thunderbird will be faster

- Let the server do the rule of marking as read (if possible)

- Ignore notifications of AquaMail, if you are at home. Notifications will disappear, when mails are marked as read

- Let Tasker and AquaMail plugin do the job:
Tasker can change settings and disable notifications of AquaMail, when you're at home (home Wifi)
Tasker can stop the notification, wait for x seconds/minutes, then show a notification.

Maybe one of the ideas helps?

True but i think a refresh of 3 minutes will drain the battery more than push

- Let the server do the rule of marking as read (if possible)
Not possible to mark as read there and don't want to create a rule where mails are moved in different folders.

- Ignore notifications of AquaMail, if you are at home. Notifications will disappear, when mails are marked as read
True too. But the sound is played. That's my problem. I disabled sound and only use LED for now...

- Let Tasker and AquaMail plugin do the job:
Tasker can change settings and disable notifications of AquaMail, when you're at home (home Wifi)
Tasker can stop the notification, wait for x seconds/minutes, then show a notification.
Will look into it, thanks.

I solved it myself.

I took a notification tone with 30 seconds silence at the beginning and it works. If the message is marked as read by thunderbird, the notification is cancelled by aquamail and no tone is played.
