per account settings

Asked by dayf on 2011-09-14

any plans to make the settings in the options tab on a per account basis? eg work (home) mail might not trigger envelope color change at home (work), respectively.

I can't make all settings account-specific, but I can make a "blacklist" option for accounts to not trigger the envelope color change.

I will be able to do it after new accounts loading (by account, not by id) lands.

Committed!
Now, to prevent some accounts for changing envelope color, add a "Blacklist" section to your config file (~/.config/unity-mail.conf):

[Blacklist]
email1 = True
email2 = True

I can also make those emails stop displaying notifications, if you want.

A quick update: I've made a nicer blacklist implementation.

Now you should put "Blacklist = name1@server1, name2@server2 <...>" in the end of "General" section, where serverX can be the exact name of imap server or with cut "imap." beginning, so in most cases simply putting your e-mail there will work.

This will be available in the coming version 0.8.11.
