Description:

Some peoples (like me) are too stupid to calculate timezone offsets properly. So when email arrives at time you are sleeping and sender of email live on the other side of the earth, it is not so easy to find what is a current time on the other end.

To help, this patch on kdepim was created. It display current time on message sender`s end in the header part of the message.

I`m very unsure it would be useful for someone except me, so it is not filled as a wish on bugs.kde.org.

Background images and colors are subject to change if someone will suggest better variant :-)

Get it here:
http://kdemod.ath.cx/svn/trunk/kdepim/04_kmail-fancy-currenttime.patch

Apply with "patch -p1 -i 04_kmail-fancy-currenttime.patch"

Works with normal kdepim and kdepim-enterprise

Another good idea of dmiceman. I realy like your work.

Maybe you should contact the KDE developers team to get things like kfuseiso into the default distribution?

Thank you very much! :-)

But this is different story for kfuseiso. It depends on too much things outside kde: linux (kde live on many OSes), fuse (mean recent linux kernel), fuseiso (which is pretty much should be separate application). There is a ways in which kde4 can be changed to allow better integration of things like kfuseiso, and i plan to look at this at times when kde4 will be closer, but don`t think what something more is needed.

Lately, I wish more and more that Konqueror and KMail would be extendible by extensions, like Firefox and Thunderburd.

This is a great would-be plugin for that.

Yes! File it as a wish at bugs.kde.org because I belive that this is a very useful feature to have in KMail.

not sure.. as of current implementation i`m agree -- it don`t fit into kmail interface very well. and it is not reasonable to add extensive configuration for it. may be a best solution is to postpone it for a times when it can be implemented as a little plugin in a some scripting language.

Make the colors configurable, in the great spirit of KDE ;)

Make it only display the sender time if the sender is in a different time zone than the receiver.

Thank you for your suggestions :-)

Configurable colors: It`s would be a real overkill :-) Configuration code will be several times bigger then feature, sorry..

Not display same timezone: Hmm.. As a man who live at night, that is not a bad idea to know what is a time of day are now outside. So.. Don`t know. If you wish, i`ll add this for you.

perhaps if the background was based on the users colour scheme?

great idea, hopefully it will get merged into trunk

:-) it would be nice to have night, morning, afternoon, evening colors in color theme, but currently it is not possible.

currently there is a predefined colors, hard coded into C code, along with background images (gradients), like the existing spam-meter. not a best solution, but..
