How do I set up mail notifications?

Use the Mail Notifications setting to choose when to receive notifications of new mail.

  1. Open the IBM Verse app.
  2. Select Settings > Notifications to open the Mail Notifications page.
  3. First, choose the group of people sending the mail that you want to be notified about.
    • All - Receive a notification for every mail.
    • Important people only - (Cloud only) Receive a notification only when mail arrives from a person in your Important to Me list.
    • None - Do not receive any mail notifications.
  4. Then choose when Verse should display the notification.

    By default, Verse notifies you as soon as it detects an incoming mail. This option is useful when you are expecting time-sensitive mails that require quick responses. However, the notification will not include the mail's subject, and if you immediately open your Inbox, you might find that the mail is not available for viewing yet and you have to refresh your Inbox to see when it becomes available.

    If you don't want to receive a notification until the mail is available for viewing, press the Notify me immediately button to disable this setting. Disabling this option delays notification, which enables Verse to include the mail's subject in the notification -- however, notifications are not reliable with this option disabled. For best results, leave this option enabled.
