CleverCat:

Really, I don't see the point unless you want notifications, which I find very distracting & annoying.

If, on the rare occasion my sister in New York invites me to skype with her, she sends me a text message.
If I thought she might send me an email to invite me to video chat, I'd go crazy sitting there hitting refresh every 5 seconds.
That could be all the time. I don't know how you manage like that, CleverCat!

I use Pop peeper which auto checks and pops up a window when there's mail - I don't have to do anything!  :Thmbsup:

I never use this feature. I've never wanted it. When I want my email, I just go get it. That's for personal use.

Hi SKesselman, We aim to please!.  There is now a "Check manually -or- Do not use" option above to record this preference.

I kind like them since I follow a bunch of forums. If I need to do serious and ├╝ber-concentrated work (like, being close to a project deadline) I shut down my mail client and instant-messenger stuff though. But for regular work and computer use, I don't get distracted much by IM or mail notifications.

Yeah, I have a few ADHD tendencies, one of them being virtually unable to tolerate things popping up, spinning, blinking, or sounding off. If it's something I can contol (close window), it just feels like a game of whack-a-mole. It drives me batty. I'm about to find out about the new mail in a few minutes, anyway. Even when I was in pc hardware support, not a whole lot's going to change in three minutes. What, is someone going to reach through my monitor and choke me for not answering fast enough?

Forums are a little different. If I were watching one, or some, I'd be hitting the refresh button in all my open windows all day long...

Gotcha covered.. :Thmbsup:

2 * email @ 5  min  = 10
1 * email @ 10 min = 10
1 * email @ 15 min = 15
1 * email @ 20 min = 20
1 * email @ 30 min = 30
1 * email @ 45 min = 45
3 * email on IMAP = (instantaneous)

TotMins= 130
TotAccts = 10

AvgMins = TotMins / TotAccts

AvgMins = 13

13 Mins = 5th Option ("11 - 20 Mins" in poll)

So, select the 5th option!  :P
