Unread Email Notification

You can keep track of how many emails you have that are unread in your inbox even when Mailbird is minimized. To show the unread email counter in the taskbar and system tray:

1) Go to the Mailbird menu in the top left of the main window.

2) Select "Settings"

3) Click the "General" tab

4) Check or un-check "Notifications: Show unread count in taskbar & system tray"

You can see the unread email count in the taskbar.

In the system tray if you have an unread email you will see a blue dot on the Mailbird icon

    Is it possible to let Mailbird minimize to taskbar on exit? Because I always forget to click minimize instead of exit, and I'd like it to stay "open" in taskbar to show unread messages count.

    Hi Tommy, I'm afraid that is not possible right now, but you can submit a formal request for it in here

    Good morning. I've this option set, but still I don't see any unread count in the Mailbird icon in the taskbar, while it appears in the system tray. I'm on Windows 10 Pro.

    On high def displays, like MS Surface (2736 x 1824 resolution), the taskbar icon's  badge/unread mail counter is VERY TINY, practically unreadable.  Are developers aware of this issue?  Is there a fix for this?

    Hi Dean, yes our developers are aware of it and working to improve hi-res displays view.
