qmailcheck is a simple application that lets you watch multiple IMAP mailboxes for new mail. This is similar nature to the older “biff” style mail notifications, but is designed specifically to watch multiple IMAP folders and be extremely portable to multiple device types (eg, cell phones like the N900).
Each folder can be set up with different notification types when new mail arrives. Alter forms include:
- A notification (eg, a taskbar pop-up)
- Pop the window forward
- Flash the LED (Maemo/N900)
- Vibrate the device (Maemo/N900)
