For screenshot, look at the download.
I amm usually always busy, and never see my desktop. I have a SuperKaramba theme there that shows how many new emails I got.
It is not very useful when I hardly ever see it. I often forget to check my mail, and occasionally, there is mail there I need to answer pretty quickly.
I got this idea:
A KDE system tray applet that pops up a small notification whenever you get a new mail.
Functions I think would be cool to include:
- New mail notification *
- New mail amount *
- POP Support *
- IMAP support
- Support for many mail clients, such as Thunderbird, KMail, and perhaps web browsers for those that have webmail and pop/imap. Support meaning that you can click that mail clien's icon or name on the notification and it starts.
- Themability, so the icon in the system tray and the notification can look however the user wants them to look.
Functions marked with * should be mandatorily included, the rest are not that important, and can be excluded.
I hope someone who can code (unlike me) picks up on the idea and makes it a reality. I'm sure it would get popular, and would be pretty useful.
