irssi-email-mentions

Receive an email when somebody mentions you on IRC.

  • You're mailed when somebody mentions you (or when your nick appears in the message)
  • You're mailed when a message is send to everyone on the channel
  • You're mailed when somebody sends you a private message

Requirements

This plugin uses sendmail wrapper to send emails. If you have postfix or exim installed it's already in your system. Otherwise you can use nullmailer or ssmtp.

You'll also need MIME::Lite library for Perl.

On Debian/Ubuntu you can install it with

apt-get install libmime-lite-perl

Install

Lame install

$ ssh username@your-shell.net
$ curl https://github.com/mlomnicki/irssi-email-mentions/master/install.sh | sh

Open Irssi and type the following command in any window

/script load email_mentions.pl
