    Hi All

    I am using Pop Peeper an email notifier (Just installed). When I run POP Peeper Un Sandboxed every thing works OK, including the flashing scroll lock key on my keyboard that indicates new mail has been received.

    If I run it sandboxed new mail is received but the Scroll Lock light does not flash.

    I have posted in the Sandboxie forums but no response.

    I believe it to be something I need to add to my Sandboxie config file, but I don't know what. Can anyone suggest how to resolve this issue please?

    Thanks

    Terry

    Hi All

    Just discovered that the Sroll lock light won't flash when Pop Tray (another email notification software) is Sandboxed.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Terry

    First question is your email client sandboxed?(which client)

    Also there is the possiblitiy it won't work sandboxed, just depends on how it works.

    Hi Peter

    I use Thunderbird sandboxed usually shut down, thats why I use Pop Peeper/Tray to catch messages

    Hi Terry

    If it has to install anything low level like a driver or service, then Sandboxie will block that. You can get around that, but then you might as well not run sandboxed.
