How to Disable Popup Preview of Messages?

Hi. I'm just trying to figure out if there's a way to stop Mail.app from popping up the small preview of messages in the top right corner of the screen when they're first received. I find this incredibly annoying. I've searched thoroughly for a solution to this, but all I can find is how to remove the preview pane, which is not what I need to do. I don't know anything else to call this feature besides a "preview," which makes it hard to search for a solution, since so many of the results center around the preview pane. I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I don't know why this doesn't annoy more people. When I'm working, I get tons of emails around the same time. The last thing I want is to constantly be visually interrupted when the new mail sound suffices. Either way, thanks for the help.

    Is it possible to disable some popups from FEP Client on the desktop. But how to disable popups from real time protection. This is so that end users who are non technical are not disturbed and only the I.T is aware of the viruses in teh environment.Shahid Roofi

    You could set policies which when a malware detected an action perform automatically without user interaction but there is no GPO which stop the notification, one reason could be that when notification keep appearing, then user will know something is wrong
    otherwise why FEP should display any warning.

  • SAP Logon - how to disable popups while playing tests (QC and  TAO)

    Hello,
    I am using QC 10, QTP 10 SAP TAO 2.03.
    I recorded and cofigured sample scripts and now I am planning to run it from QC during night. There is one problem to run scripts someone needs to accept popups initiated by sap logon at the beginning of test run -
    So my question is how to disable the logon popup windows and fully automate runs?
    Thank you in advance for your help
    Edited by: Ksan_1 on Apr 1, 2011 9:04 PM

    It is just the beginning of replaying the test.
    When i initiate the test eg from the QC the very first operation is to confirm 2 popups. First informs about starting the gui and. Second is confirmation that script would be initiated. In the system.
    So i need human interaction to initiate each SAP and this is part i want to eliminate.
    Is there any way to disable the initial popup?

  • How to disable buffering of similar messages in syslog?

    Hi All,
    Following is my system details:
    SunOS mocm 5.10 Generic_138888-03 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200
    On this system I see that, similar messages passed to syslog are suppressed after the first entry and only the count of the number of times that message got repeated is printed. However I want all the logs to be printed even if they have same content.
    Here is what I am getting now:
    +Jul 13 12:01:54 mocm Application[26103]: [ID 441523 local1.notice] xxWriting from stub+
    Jul 13 12:01:54 mocm last message repeated 1 time

    Jul 13 12:02:56 mocm last message repeated 7 times
    and this is what I want:

    +Jul 13 12:02:45 mocm Application[2845]: [ID 188083 local1.notice] Writing from stub+
    Is there a way I can configure syslogd to print all the log messages instead of buffering similar messages.

    To disable automatic grouping of duplicate messages, quit Mail then run this command in Terminal:
         defaults write com.apple.mail AlwaysShowDuplicates -bool true
    To revert to the default setting, run this command:
         defaults write com.apple.mail AlwaysShowDuplicates -bool false
    or simply delete the setting altogether with this command:
         defaults delete com.apple.mail AlwaysShowDuplicates
    If you want to see how Mail behaves with this setting enabled, but without modifying your preference file, start Mail from Terminal with this command:
         /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail -AlwaysShowDuplicates YES

  • How to disable detection of duplicate messages in Lion Mail?

    When Mail in Lion detects duplicate messages in a mailbox, it groups them together and shows the link in the header "x Duplicates", where x is the number of duplicate messages found. When that link is clicked the duplicate messages show in the mailbox separately. But I'd like Mail to stop grouping them together to begin with.
    Running OS X 10.7.3 and Mail 5.1

    To disable automatic grouping of duplicate messages, quit Mail then run this command in Terminal:

  • How to disable popup from Java for upate of J2SE?

    Dear
    We have an instance 12.0.5 running on AIX box.Since last week whenever user tries to login & use ERP, java popup appears. It asks whether to download J2SE update. Once we accept & download, it gets connected to intenet (java.com) for verification. Most of the users does not have internet connection. In this situation, i want to disable this popup.
    According to my understanding, Oracle R12 is bundled with J2SE (some version) software though which we run forms based applications. My question is, how do i disable this popup to avoid J2SE update installation & use default J2SE version that is already installed on user PC when they first login to ERP instance?
    Secondly, how can i upgrade J2SE for specific ERP instance on AIX server for latest Java version? And is it acceptable according oracle policies. What i mean whenever we have new version of java (J2SE), how do i make it applicable to our instance?
    Thanks.

    To disable updates, click on Java in the Control Panel, click on Update tab, and clear the "Check for Updates" Automatically" box.

    Regards,

    I am not familiar with the printout method. You can preview in your web browswer if you create an HTML report and save this to file. You can then view the html in your browser to preview and later use the browser to print. Goto the following page and search for activex internet explorer to find examples on incorperating the browser into your VI.

    I have to pres ENTER and sometimes lots of buttons to find a "Tombik(my hostname) login : ___" inscription.
    Also, the message below appears after the udev in the initscrips at the begining of the system.

    My /etc/rc.local file includes,

    How can i prevent "[drm] nouveau.....forcing panel scaling" and "ntpd" messages not to be shown in the beginning system messages and my main console ?
    ( i use "drm_kms_helper.poll=0" and "quiet" in my /boot/grub/menu.lst . But they only solve screen flashing and "[drm] nouveau.....forcing panel scaling" message in every 10 second .)

  • How to disable Unicode in SMS messages (Nokia 6670...

    Hello.
    I've bought N6670 and the first thing I want to change, is to disable Unicode charset in SMS messages. I use T9 dictionary, so the Unicode special charset is enabled (I'm from Poland, so there is a lot of special chars).
    But - of course - message with special chars is bigger, so the phone sends for example 2 messages, instead of one.
    Is it any chance to turn of sending special chars?
    Regards
    R.

    Hello,
    We use such messages in transliterate characters. As example, privet.
    That's the easiest way.

  • How to disable Disk Insertion warning message?

    I'm running OS X 10.4.8 from an external FW drive, reserving the internal HD on my MacBook for Linux. When booting OS X a warning message pops up: "Disk Insertion - The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" with action buttons Initialize..., Ignore, Eject . This must refer to the internal HD, as OS X apparently can't handle Linux partitions. Hitting Ignore, or waiting a while, makes the message go away.
    My fear is that one of these days I'll hit the Initialize... button by mistake, hosing my Linux partitions in the process. Any gurus out there know how to turn this dangerous (for me) message off?
    N.B. I also posted this message on the MacBook forum, but got no response there... sorry for this, I really want to remove this potential landmine...
    MacBook   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    No. If you fail to eject any disk device properly then there's a risk that cached data will not be fully written thus corrupting the device's data.
    This doesn't happen with an iPad or iPod when syncing has stopped because the sync process does not leave cached data unwritten until the device is ejected unless you remove it before a sync has completed. It will happen, however, if you use the iPod in disk mode. The iPad has no default disk mode. You must use a third-party app in order to read or write directly from an iPad. The issue is also academic for iPads and some iPods that do not have disk drives.
