Notification Content – How do I display only certain message details in my Notifications?

Visual Notifications are a great way of staying on top of your incoming messages. The email Preview that is shown gives a short glimpse into the sender and content of the message and allows you to handle your incoming emails with ease.

In our latest version, you can now customize exactly which type of Notification Content you would like (or wouldn’t like) to display on your Notifications when receiving your emails. It’s set per account, so you can choose a different selection for each of your accounts!

Head on over to More (o o o) | Notifications | scroll to desired account | Notification Content

You will see the following three options in the Notification Content view:

  • Show All Details  The Sender + Message Subject + Content Preview will be shown (default setting)
  • Only From and Subject – Only the Sender (From) + Message Subject will be shown
  • Hide

What are the Notifications Methods?

Notifications use the notification bar, and show a short preview of the email.

BlueMail allows you to control the notifications method per account using More | Notifications | scroll to the account | Instant Push Settings | Push or Fetch | choose from four main options:

  • Push – To get instant notifications.
  • Push (No Preview) – To get instant notifications without a preview to reduce battery usage.
  • No Push – To disable push notifications, but still see emails being updated when opening the app.
  • Fetch – To get periodic notifications based on an interval set in Fetch Interval setting.
  • Manual – To do on-demand refresh sync only, and do not get notifications.

If you choose Fetch method you can select the Fetch Interval – and choose how often you wish to check for new emails.

Please note that currently, only emails arriving in the Inbox will trigger a notification.

IMAP vs. POP3

BlueMail supports both IMAP and POP3, however, we recommend using IMAP over POP3, where possible, as it is a modern protocol which supports, folder sync, delete on server sync between devices, push notification and many other benefits. IMAP by design keeps all devices in sync.

Please note, if you do use POP3 for your given accounts on multiple devices (such as your mobile or PC), one of the devices may download the emails from your server and remove it (depending on your server settings).
