I propose an option to show the subject (clicable) of the unread messages in the system tray notifier for the kmail (in a submenu) and when a new message arrives to show the subject in the notification area (knotifier).

i made some mockups:

What happens when you log on to your computer and get thirty messages?

in this case it shows only the number of messages. The whole idea cames from the kcheckgmail programm that i used for new messages notifier since more than 2 years and it gives a very nice a comfort experience

This should definitely be optional, as there are often other people looking at my screen and I don't want them to see my subjects.

Copied mockups to original post to make it more convenient for viewers.

There was an idea a while back that is probably in developement that does this. Let me find it...

It had the notifications as icons, and then when clicked it would give more options.

EDIT: Marked as duplicate of idea 91258.

I am not agree with changing my idea with duplicate of the idea 91258.
My mockup adds only one entry in the CURRENT kmail systray icon and changes only the DESCRIPTION of the CURRENT knotifier message.

Please, dont garble my idea and mockup

How you can see any similarity between these mockups ?

Ummm...
oops.
I missed that it was three images, not one big one.


The grouping has been mentioned, and the clickable subject I think I read in the PDF.
You could add a comment on that idea to be able to reply as a right-click menu option.

This idea is explicitly about adding more info to the KMail systray icon, that other idea is about a new way of notifications.
If I'm not totally mistaken, these two ideas have got as much in common as... Gandhi and Ballmer.

Missing 2 out of 3 images and "thinking" you read something in the PDF seems a bit unfocused and hasty for basically taking an idea out of KDE Brainstorm.

Oh, how great analogy! Can I steal.... errh... copy that? :-D

Yes, these two ideas are totally different. Even that in my idea includes this functionality but it really is whole new notification system while this just is "improvement" to current notification system.

But this is my reason on the idea #91258 that notifications should be informative and be configurable so user does not miss important notifications (important email) or get interrupted when shouldn't (non important email).

You mean a mine brainstorm.php#idea91258 idea? If so, check PDF page 16, where you can see in mockup a two action buttons. That is from file actions, but they would be there as well in different notifications like emails.

Single click to open a notification to show more of the email like on page 10. Double clicking to open that email. Right clicking to ignore/hide the notification. There could be two action buttons what user could configure, like answer and redirect, but in notification system such that, you do not see whole email so such actions are unlikely needed there. More important would be "spam" and "mark as important" and so on. As the PDF says, there could me small icons in tiles, like a clip icon on top of email if email has attachment (like important email has red ! sign). But that discussion could be done there then as it is whole notification system where email notification tile functions and informations are just one part of it.

But this brainstorm idea is different, even mine has its ideas. But not all want a totally new notification system. (even that personally I find current want limited and hard to use).
