Whoops, that should read Mint 20.1 not 2.1. Sorry

MailNag is one of the more usefull applets available for the cinnamon envronment. A clean install of Mint 2.1 however seems to break Mailnag completely and no amount of deletes and re-installs will coax it back to life. I for one would love to see this usefull tool receive some attention with a view to having it working again.

After upgrading mint version 20 to 20.1 the functioning of Mailnag was seriously impaired and unusable. Resolved by total removal of Mailnag and the Mailnag daemon. After installing a fresh copy of the Mailnag app as well as the Mailnag daemon the applet is fully functional again.

Mailnag daemon working but the mailnag applet doesn't show the new messages and their number anymore. Any suggestion?

I've installed cinnamon 4.8 in EndeavourOS. Unfortunately mailnag doesn't work anymore (cinnamon says taht the applet is not working and it suggests to remove it) . Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

Same problem for me with cinnamon 4.8 on Archlinux. Mailnag was working fine before the update.

OK, resolved it. 1. install the ppa, than install mailnag sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pulb/mailnag sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mailnag 2. un- and reInstall the applet 3. rightklick the applet and configure Mailnag 4. reenter the passwords for the endered mailaccounts. They where missing in my installation. Now it works fine again :-)

Sorry, I upgraded for Mint 19.3 to Mint 20. Before mailnag works fine.

Error message in Linux Mint: Mailnag deamon is not running. Do you have it installed? I un- and reinstalled mailnag several times, but it is not working.

Is there a way to make the icon disappear when there is no unread email messages?

in Configure Mailnag / Folders (optional) : "Connection failed." <--- i keep on getting this message in red. IDK what I am doing wrong. :-(

Works well as far as information on new mails is concerned, but gives me absurd time indications. According to the applet, the oldest mail came in 33.040 hours ago. That's 1.377 days, thus more than 3 1/2 years ago. :))

The calculation of the hours, when the mail was arrived seems wrong. i corrected it in the applet this way: return Math.floor(time_diff / 60 * 60) + _(" hours ago"); to return Math.floor(time_diff / 3600) + _(" hours ago");

Works nice. You need to install the mailnag daemon first. On Linux Mint just type `apt install mailnag`
