Bug Description

The messaging menu status (online/away/busy/offline) should not be restricted to instant messaging. Switching it to "busy" should turn off the new mail notifications, especially the popup and the sound.

I'm not sure this is a Geary bug. We built our messaging subsystem to comport to Ubuntu's guidelines: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MessagingMenu and http://developer.ubuntu.com/resources/technologies/messaging-menu/ I don't see the behavior you're requesting discussed there -- please point it out to me if I'm wrong.

Is this behavior you see in other applications? If so, which one(s)?

It's probably more about notifications in general that would be turned off depending of the messaging status.

I can't say I saw this behaviour in other applications as I barely use instant messaging or other applications that go in the way of work. I just felt that Geary was annoying with it's constant noise and pop-ups while I was trying to focus on my work.

I know nothing about these guidelines. Maybe they could be updated to integrate this behaviour?

My feeling is that this is a Messaging Menu feature request. I think it's a reasonable idea, but this should be forwarded to them for consideration. I'm including them in the affected projects list for this ticket.

I should also note that GNOME Shell has a solution to this problem. In the user menu (top-right corner), there's a "Notifications" switch. Turn it off, no more notifications.

This has nothing to do with the messaging menu, as that doesn't actually show the popups.
