Mate desktop: Mail notification in panel?


Hi,

I'm looking for a mail notifcation program which can check a gmail imap account and show the number of unread emails in the notification area (where the volume , language, etc. indicators are).

I've combed the packages list but couldn't find something for the Mate desktop.

Any suggestions?.

Thanks

you don't mention your distro, but this thread discusses using birdtray (among others) with thunderbird in mint mate.

Thanks.

I'm using Debian stable, and as mentioned, with the Mate desktop.

Birdtray seems to depend on Thunderbird, but I prefer a stand-alone mailchecker.

Just as an aside, mzzxx11, "bumping" is frowned on at LQ and will not help increase the visibility of your post.
