    Obviously, if the client is running, this even is trigged on a new message.

    However, it doesn’t seem (in my limited testing)to activate if a message arrives while the client is shut down, and the client is started a few minutes later.

    Is this true?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    You’re right, the client must be running when the message comes for the On Message Arrival event to be triggered.

    The way you can sometimes get around this issue is to write your applet so that it executes on startup and scans existing messages looking for those that are unread.

    Sounds like a decent workaround.

    Thanks,

    No problem. You will find an example of this approach in the Virus Alert applet which ships with Formativ.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
