Is there an option to have a pop up show when an end user puts secure in the subject reminding them this email is being sent securely? I am looking for a way to setup an alert for this
Thank you for your comment. It looks like our Outgoing Email Checker will suit your needs better. Using it, you could create a rule to be notified each time there is the word "secure" in the email subject or body. For detailed information on how to use the tool, please visit our help page.
I'm curious if it's possible to set wildcards in the mail alert, so you get a message on every email that arrives. is that possible?
If yes, how?
Thank you for your question. If you'd like the add-in to notify you every time an email arrives, please try to create a rule using the @ sign as the Search text and selecting the Sender option to search in.
Hope this will work for you.
Does the rule alert carry across to other PC's signed in using the same email account?
Or do you need to duplicate the alert on each pc?
Thank you for your questions.
Unfortunately, the rule for the same email account won't work on other machines if the add-in is not installed there. You will have to first install the add-in there and set a rule for Important Mail Alert anew. Alternatively, you can copy the file with your rule from C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Ablebits\Important Mail Alert on the machine where you're using it at the moment and paste it in the same folder on other machines after installing the add-in there. Hope this will help you.
Will the alert sound continuously play until the alert is addressed?
No, it won't play continuously. It'll be a brief sound (which one - depends on your Windows sounds settings) at the moment of getting a pop-up message.
Hi, is there a way to use sound alert along with regular notification when email arrives?
thank you for your question. The Important Mail Alert utility uses the standard Windows notification sound and it is impossible to change it or add any new alert.
Please feel free to contact us again with any other comments.
Thanks Irina, then does notification work on shared folders?
(exchange email account)
The tool scans all the Outlook accounts you select in the Options window, including shared folders. When the utility finds emails that fit your rule, it gives you a notification: visual and sound. However, there may be some issues with shared folders if you have limited permissions - in this case, the utility may not be able to scan the entire folder.
