Spark for Mac

4.6. How Notifications work

There are three types of notifications in Spark: 

  • All - get a notification for every incoming message.
  • Smart - mutes strangers and automated emails.
  • No notifications - no notifications will be sent. 

Choose preferable type for each e-mail account: 

  1. Spark menu
  2. Preferences
  3. Accounts
  4. Select Notification Preferences

Smart Notifications is an exclusive feature in Spark, with this setting you won't be disturbed by notifications about emails from strangers, newsletters or notifications from social media, etc. All the contacts that received replies from you are considered to be important, and you will receive push notifications about new emails from such contacts. 

Smart Notifications are flexible; you can mark contacts as important and non-important. To mark a contact as important, open any email from this contact's email address, right-clicking the sender's email and tap on the bell icon. If you don't want to receive notifications from certain email address, simply tap on the bell (highlighted in blue), and the contact will be muted.
