Duplicate Notifications in Growl Mail

Postby ovrdrvn » Fri Oct 02, 2009 4:31 pm

Latest Mail (Snow Leopard) and latest Growl.

I get dupe notifications for each message (email). Doesn't matter the account or type (have a 2 pop and 2 imap accounts). This has happened in prior versions...I don't recall the fix.

Any help appreciated as I'm using Prowl as well and getting bombarded!

You have two copies of GrowlMail installed.

Uninstall GrowlMail using the “Uninstall GrowlMail” application on the Growl disk image, then reinstall it.

I have the same problem.

Uninstalling does not help.

I'm using gmail IMAP. Everytime Mail.app downloads a mail to the inbox growl notifies me in the normal way, but then mail.app downloads the mail into the "all messages" folder.

And then growl notifies me again. It didn't do it before...

It has always done this with IMAP accounts, because there's no way GrowlMail can tell that this is the same message.

The workaround is to turn on “Only notify for emails in your Inbox” in GrowlMail's preferences.
