The following info is available:
This is coolmail, version 1.2rpi. Coolmail is an xbiff-like program which sits on your desktop and lets you know when email has arrived. Coolmail has a nifty 3D mailbox icon which moves in 3D when mail arrives. It's.. well.. cool! The flag pops up when new mail arrives, and there is a letter in the mailbox whenever you have mail left in your .newmail file (regardless of whether you have already read it). If you click on the mailbox, it spins around and opens, and runs a copy of your mail program. (the default is zmail, it can be changed with the -e option). This program required extensive modification to work properly with RPI's POP mail system. Please let me (Josh Wilmes, firstname.lastname@example.org) know if I messed up anywhere. I did test the program for about a month, without incident.
coolmail - 3D animated mail notificaion utility
coolmail [option ...]
Coolmail is a mail notification utility with 3D animated graphics. Coolmail watches your inbox and lets you know when you have mail. Clicking on coolmail can launch your mail reading/writing utility. While your mail utility is open, clicking on coolmail will cause it to check your inbox at that instant, without waiting for the next regular interval.
-e command Use the specified command to launch your mail utility. Command is a string, and should be in quotes if it contains spaces. -f filename Watch filename, instead of the default mail inbox file. -h Print some help then exit. -int n | -update n Check your mail inbox at n-second intervals. The default is 30 seconds. -once Ring bell when new mail is first detected, but not when more new mail is detected. -v Print version and inbox path. Coolmail also accepts the standard X Toolkit options, such as -geometry, etc.
coolmail -e "emacs -f rmail" -int 20 Tells coolmail to check the inbox every 20 seconds, and launch the shell command, emacs -f rmail, when the user clicks on coolmail.
This program understands the core resource names and classes as well as: inbox (class Inbox) Specifies the mail inbox that coolmail will watch. mailCommand (class MailCommand) Specifies the command that should be launched to read and write mail.
