Whoops, sorry. I'm using Evolution 3.10.4 on the Cinnamon desktop of

(Please don't top post on this mailing list)

Evolution uses the Gnome desktop notification system for new mail
alerts.  Some configuration is possible at

 Edit -> Plugins -> Mail Notification

(at least that's where it is in 3.18.x - I think 3.10 was the same, but
that version is old and unsupported now)

I have no idea how Cinnamon works or if it can use the Gnome alerts -
you'll have to ask on the relevant support forum.

Ah, I downloaded the version I have from Mint's software manager, which
currently hosts 3.10. Checking out Ubuntu's package listings (since Mint
is based off Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) it says that this is the latest version
available for 14.04 and that 3.18.x isn't supported until Xenial
(16.04). Is there any way I can get 3.18.x running on my machine?

(P.S. Cinnamon is based on Gnome 3 so it should be able to support Gnome
