«DockApp» E-mail notification program for POP3 and IMAP4 servers
wmnotify is a "DockApp" application, running under WindowMaker, to periodically check a POP3 or IMAP4 email account for new messages. It also supports SSL encryption. When new messages are detected, the mailbox image is animated to give a visual indication that new mail has arrived. Additionnally, if desired, a sound can be produced from a WAV or AU audio file, or from the console bell.
For simplicity reasons, wmnotify doesn't support multiple POP3 accounts. But by starting a new instance of wmnotify and specifying an alternate configuration file on the command line, you can effectively check multiple POP3 accounts.
wmnotify is an "Open-Source" project written in C and distributed under the GPL license.
This program was tested on the following systems:
