Summary: A mail notification icon for the system tray
Mail Notification monitors your mailboxes for new mail.
When new mail arrives, Mail Notification alerts you by displaying an icon
in the notification area. Moreover, a mail summary can be displayed in the
icon tooltip, a sound can be played, and notifications containing useful
action buttons can be popped up.
Mail Notification can monitor multiple mailboxes concurrently, and supports
Evolution, Gmail, IMAP, Maildir, mbox, MH, Mozilla products (Mozilla,
SeaMonkey, Thunderbird, ...), POP3, Sylpheed, Windows Live Hotmail and Yahoo!
Mail mailboxes. Moreover, since Mail Notification uses GnomeVFS, it
transparently supports remote (SSH, HTTP, ...) and compressed mailboxes.
Mail Notification supports advanced POP3 and IMAP features such as SSL/TLS
connections (in-band or on separate port), SASL and APOP authentication,
and the IMAP IDLE extension.
While its user interface is purposedly kept simple and straightforward,
advanced users are provided with ways to run commands in reaction to
events, customize the popup buttons, obtain a XML message list, modify the
appearance of the application, and so on.
When a mailbox supports it, Mail Notification listens for changes reported
by the mailbox rather than polling it periodically. This mode of operation
provides immediate notification of changes and reduces the system and
network resources used by Mail Notification.
