Description:

trueMail is a mail checker theme for karamba.
It uses Apache SpamAssassin to check if a mail is spam. If not, it displays sender and subject.
No longer false alerts cause of spam! :-)

Looks good together with: UberMon karamba theme (see screenshoot)
Last changelog:

16 years ago

- Call to SpamAssassin is now optional
(please see trueMail.theme file on how to change behaviour)
- Fixed some minor issues in the perl script

NOTE: The call to SpamAssassin via perl modules does not work on my machine. Nevertheless you can select it, as it may work on your machine. (If so, please let me know..!)

Really easy to customize. Thank you for commenting the script, very useful.

I translated it into french.

Thank you - all I wanted was a simple mail check program. Followed your instructions to set up user info - very easy thanks to your commented lines. I don't have SA at all on the system, so I had to comment out lines 6 & 7 of checkMail.pl to correct error:
#use Mail::SpamAssassin;
#use Mail::SpamAssassin::Message;

After that - it works wonderfully.

Hi,

currently it can only take one mail account. But the idea of supporting more than one is good. I'll take that on my list!

The security question 600 (or 700) for the
checkMail.pl...yep you're right this should be 700 as it must be executable.

Regards

It somehow works (it always displays the last message... well ok), but only if I leave checkMail.pl in chmod 700.

any ideas?

Niiiiice theme! Just a question: what about having TWO mail accounts with two (or more) different providers? Is there a way to cope with this?

Keep up the great work!

With 0.5 the call to SpamAssassin is now
optional.
You can choose between three ways how the script should work:
1 - Do not call SpamAssassin (default)
2 - Call SpamAssassin via command line
(works great on my machine...)
3 - Call SpamAssassin via perl module (somehow does not work on my machine...all mails are returned as no spam....)

See trueMail.theme file on what and how to customize this theme..

Have fun!

Is it possible to get this without spamassasing tie-ins? It would probably be a lot of work, but I haven't gotten around to setting up spamassassin yet (I know, lazy me :P). I love ubermon, and this would make a great addition to my desktop!

Yeah.. I wish it was made optional or something. The ability to en/disable SpamAssassin would be a great feature. I don't have SA either and don't need it since my email server does that.

I don't know why, but it always prints "No Mails"
Another karamba theme prints "2 new" at the same time.

Tell me why it doesn't work fine for me.

I wasn't even getting "No Mails." I just got nothing, but here's what I had to do.

1. comment out the SpamAssassin line starting with "system spamc"

2. Create a file in my tmp folder and tell the theme where it was. Inside checkMail.pl, look for a line "my $tempFile =" change the path to wherever you want. Make sure the path AND file exists. For me i did:

my $tempFile = /home/craveness/.superkaramba/tmp/TEST

And then created an empty file called "TEST"

The easiest way to diagnose this is to run the script from console:
perl checkMail.pl
and check the output.

Hope that helps.

You can edit the theme file and change:
CLICKAREA X=0 Y=0 W=50 H=50 ONCLICK="evolution"
the value of onlick.
E.g. from 'evolution' to 'thunderbird'

This appears to be independant of any mail client. It states that it checks *spam assasin*, not evolution.
