Thanks for your work!
i use it everyday \o/

Is it possible to add a check (optionnal?) in every directory? ...
Because when you have filters, new mail are sometimes not in the inbox...
Anyway thanks :)

Yes, that would be cool.

And an other thing: when you have new mails you open your client and read them. But this plasmoid still shows that you have mail.
So, a little option would be nice that the plasmoid checks the mails again after, say, 1 minute after the mail client has been opened.

There is button "check now" for refresh immediately, but your idea is very good. Thanks.

Check for certain IMAP folders is in my plan.

I promise i will work on the plasmoid next month.

Thanks for your job, it's veryl useful! But, why not improve it with a preview of the received mails? (i mean, like thunderbird's notify when it stay in the tray)

Sorry for my english! =)

Hello,
thanks for this plasmoid; up to now it seems it is the only one which I can compile on a 64-bit system.
I run Arch linux 64-bit with ipop3d as local pop3 server. Each access from GX mail notify produces this error messasge in the mail log file /var/log/mail.log (it works nevertheless):

Sep 7 22:57:08 arch64 ipop3d[20872]: Unexpected client disconnect, while reading line user=xxxxx host=arch64.yyyyy.de [127.0.0.1]

I use GX mail notify to check incoming mails retrieved by fetchmail daemon (to avoid doing this with my email client).
And yes, I used "korn" with KDE3, too. That email checker had been part of the old kdenetwork or kdepim package of KDE3, showing the number of new mails for configured accounts and playing a sound for new mails arriving - if you want.

Hello,

I have created a small new feature to this nice plasmoid.

It shows a short info about the new messages, so you need not always to start the email client.

Greetings,

I first want to thank you for an excellent plasmoid.

Unfortunately, because there are no transparency options in your
plasmoid, I can't use it is because it completely ruins my interface.
Is there a way you can add transparency to this essential plasmoid?

Thanks

Thanks for this plasmoid. As soon as it supports notifications it will be perfect for me, and I can banish gnome's mail-notify from my system tray. Keep up the good work!

A very nice plasmoid. My server serves emails that are never deleted. That's because I want to have access to that from everywhere. It would be a nice feature to take care for that fact. I did some changing to the sources to let the applet know about the "old" count of mails. That works for me. Maybe you add such feature to your sources?
