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 accountInstant 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. Notifications for folders other than the Inbox is on our roadmap and may be released in the future.
