Desktop notifications for incoming e-mails

Set up in your browser with just two clicks, and you'll never miss an incoming email in the future.
We will send you the message as a short notification directly to the desktop of your computer.

After you have logged in to the mail.ch webmailer, you can set up the following for your browser activate desktop notifications for your browser in the settings mode under "Messages/E-Mail/Notifications".

You will then always receive desktop notifications when you receive new e-mails and have opened the mail.ch webmailer in your browser at the same time.


However, the browser does not have to be actively open in the foreground for this - it can even run minimized in the taskbar.
