mail-notification is a program that sits in your desktop environment's notification area (or say System Tray) and shows mail status icon. When there's no mail waiting, it doesn't show any icon, and the envelope icon appears when some of configured accounts have new mail. Also it can automatically launch the program, specified in Preferences on new mail arrival. mail-notification features include: * multiple mailbox support * mbox, MH, Maildir, Sylpheed, POP3, IMAP, Gmail and Evolution support * SASL authentication support * APOP authentication support * SSL/TLS support (disabled, see README.Debian) * automatic detection of mailbox format * immediate notification (depending on your settings) * HIG 2.0 compliance OPTIONS
