catfriend creates desktop notifications when new mail arrives. It supports window managers that implement the freedesktop notification specification which includes KDE and GNOME. It can be configured to check multiple email accounts using a simple configuration file.
|Operating Systems||All POSIX (Linux/BSD/UNIX-like OSes)|
Release Notes: This release can mark accounts as "work" in the configuration file. It supports command line options for running in the foreground and enabling/disabling checking of work accounts. It removes some false notifications on shut-down.
Release Notes: This release adds a Ruby implementation that uses the IMAP IDLE command to create notifications as soon as mail arrives instead of checking at a configurable interval. The Python version now uses (pseudo) threads, as does the Ruby version.
Release Notes: Error recovery was improved.
Release Notes: This is the initial release of catfriend.
