A Messaging Menu for the Gnome Shell. All email, chat, and microblogging applications in one place.
This extension provides a convenience list of all installed email, chat and microblogging applications with short cut actions like "Contacts" and "Compose New Message" for email applications. The icon lights up when you receive notifications from the listed applications, so you won't miss another message.
The extension's preferences allow you to configure which types of applications (email / chat / microblogging) you would like to receive notifications for and which colour the icon should change to, to indicate notification.
