Postbox (which is based on the Thunderbird code) notifies me every time a new email arrives. I have some message filters in place which move some messages automatically from the Inbox to a different folder. I don't want to be notified if such filtered messages arrive. I only want to be notified, for messages in my Inbox.

For Thundebird there is the FiltaQuilla extension which supports a "Do Not Notify" filter action, but I think it isn't supported in Postbox. Is there something similar for Postbox?


My workaround is a filter rule which does the following:

  • "Move message to" a folder
  • "Mark As Read"
  • "Add topic" which I named "Incoming" so I can distinguish the new messages. After I read them I'm removing the topic.

"Mark As Read" prevents the notification.
