Mail Applet: Why was the 'Hide if No New Mail' option removed?

Asked by Ben Kirkley on 2011-01-27

In the latest build of the Mail Applet (0.4.1), I've noticed that the "Hide Applet If No New Messages" option has been removed. I must say, I quite liked having the applet out of the way when it wasn't needed. Is there a technical reason the option has now been removed? Or is it just a design decision?

The reason is that because the mail applet works standalone, it is very difficult to unhide the applet icon.

Thanks for the reply. It's a shame to see this feature go, but it's understandable.
