autostart checkgmail

Hi all,

I am still new to linux (after 4 months ). I installed checkgmail on gnome fedora 10. I would like to make it start when I login to my account. How can I do so?

Thanks in advance.

The command should be the full path to checkgmail - /usr/bin/checkgmail

If you find it doesn't work when you do what TBC Cosmo said, it is possible that the application installed somewhere else. To find that path, bring up a terminal and do a "which checkgmail"
