Thanks.
Nice job. Works now.

Just a couple thoughts:
Probably will have to change the image to a transparent gif as we all have different color for our forums and the white background doesn't work for everybody.

After importing (and overwriting the old one) the new XML I have now 2 postman settings under options in my adminCP.

Love the idea...**Installed**

I know ppl can do this and I also know I can't, however maybe in the next update if there is one have a bubble come out of his mouth and says "You've Got Mail!"

only reason I suggest this is cause some ppl like noobies etc. won't know what the heck that is lol. my 2 cents

it's all possible as faisal said you can edit template postman and make any changes you want. but in original mod i wanted it to be small , if i put a bubble text then it takes lots of space and it might be annoying for some users. plus if the noob user drags mous over the image he will see the popup text.

Works just fine on 4.1.12. My member love it and even started a post on it to come up for a name for him. It is an excellent way for members to know they have a PM that is friendly.

Love it thanks a lot.

I would just like to know how I can change the time that the pic stays on the screen? It stays even after I have clicked on several pages. Thanks.

the pat postman keeps asking you to check your unread messages ( or visitore messgaes , friend rquests . . . ) untill you check all of them . he's a responsible post man , you can't ignore him
