thank you very much for your fast reply :).

But i already was aware of the notification capability of the Sylpheed
tray icon and i actually started this thread because i personally think
the notification which the tray icon provides is too "subtle" ;)
(meaning: not "enough visual cue" ;D ). Maybe should have mentioned
that initially ;).

What the decription of the Add-on mentioned in the OP explains is what
i was looking for with this thread. In Windows for example, calling
attention to the Sylpheed main window when new messages arrived, should
make a Sylpheed taskbar button blink/flash and glow, which seems to be a
more prominent notification than what the Sylpheed tray icon provides.
And because one could imagine that an option like this maybe
wouldn't be too hard to implement (not sure), i asked here ;).

But thank you anyway :).

I was also going to ask something similar in another (following)
thread, so you might want to take a look ;).

Still, if there is someone here who can provide a solution for this
topic, it would be appreciated of course :).

Thank you very much in advance.
