Looking For Email Notification Software


Hi,
I'm using Fedora Core 3 and I remember that in Windows there used to be programs like incredimail and others which included something that would tell you when you had a new e-mail. Is there anything like that for linux. If there is could someone link to it. I'd like an rpm if possible.
Thanks in advance,
Paul

mail-notification

There are a lot of *biff's out there -- kbiff, for one. But I find mail-notification works quite well, and is quite neat. It's not perfect though -- if you use evolution and leave your mail open on the "New Mail" vFolder, reading an item doesn't remove it from the "new" list in mail-notification, until you switch to another vFolder or folder. So I'm also going to check out the link (:

I also don't know what mail client you are using -- but if you haven't already, check out evolution. I've tried a lot of mail clients, and nothing seems to compare. Though, if you don't need the calendaring and events and all that, then Thunderbird is, of course, brilliant. Though I haven't tried other mail notifiers with Thunderbird...
