Are you tired of constantly clicking on “Check Mail” on your Yahoomail account to see if you have a new email? Do you want your webmail to act like your Outlook email wherein it would alert you of new emails? There is a way to do this and it is by adding the webmail notifier add-on in Mozilla Firefox.
With the webmail notifier you wouldn’t miss out on the new emails that arrive. If you have a business transaction with a client they would even be impressed by the promptness of your reply to their email.
Here’s how to get the webmail notifier. Just click on the picture below to bring you to the Firefox Add-on page
Once the page opens just click on the green button that says Add to Firefox.
Configuring your webmail notifier is easy. You would see a mail icon on the lower right side of your Firefox browser, right click on it and choose preferences. From there you can add your webmail accounts like Hotmail, Yahoomail and GMail.
There are settings you can change on the General tab of your webmail notifier. I let it check emails after every 5 minutes and if an email arrives I set it to open up in a new tab.
With this little add-on you would immediately know when an important email arrives in your inbox.
