    Default KMail - System Tray?

    Just setting up new installation 42.2 .. KMail configured and working fine .. but cannot work out how to make it appear in System Tray when there is unread mail? ...

    It was always there in 42.1 but i cannot remember if i made it do that or if it was automatic KMail thing??

    Any clues??

    Thanks

    Settings->Appearance->System Tray Settings.

    That's translated from german, it may be labelled slightly different in english...

    Thanks wolfi ... 'slightly' and i might have got there .. but cannot find 'System Tray Settings' anywhere














    However .. in the deep recesses of my mind i have a faint flicker of having been to a place where you can configure the System Tray .... but it is a deep recess and i cannot for the love of me get back there !!

    It is either 'Old Age' or 'Domestic Blindness' i would say .. neither of which i have much control over *sigh*

    OKAY ... i put my glasses on and found where one configures 'System Tray' ... unlock widgets and right click on System Tray (strange place to put it *lol*)

    However, cannot find any reference to KMail in the options:




    and with curiosity i notice that under the Entries tab ... DropBox has found its way there (that blip between Keyboard and Audio.. but again i cannot see how the user can command it???

    OKAY ALREADY .... you were referring to the KMail Menu .. not the Suse System Menus!!!!!

    So ... it is

    Code:
    Open KMail > Settings > Configure KMail > Appearance > System Tray
    Doh!!!
