I've got problems setting up the notifications for Evolution. I already installed mail-indicator-evolution and evolution-indicator but neither of them appear in the notification area.

How can I properly set it up? Besides, I'd like the mail to be updated automatically without a window open.

I'm using the MATE desktop environment.

open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y evolution-plugins.
this should do the trick for the notifications while evolution is open... maybe you have to configure/activate/deactivate some of these plugins in Evolution via Edit, Plugins.


if you want a notification without evolution running in the background, open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y mail-notification-evolution.
this will install a little extra program checking for mails in the background without having the mail-client running. maybe you just have to configure it to your needs via the launcher in the control center.
