popcheck is a SuperKaramba theme that displayes the most recent 20 e-mails received at a POP account that are still awaiting download.
Queries the POP server once per minute and as new e-mails as they arrive.
The sender and the title are displayed.
You must configure the hostname and username/password info in the popcheck.py file.
You can include a list of substrings, such that if one of them is found in a new mail, an audible alert will sound. This allows you to know when new mail from particular people has arived.
The default alert sound is the word "MAIL" in Morse code. You can change this in the popcheck.py file by pointing to a different alert_file, or by replacing the included mail.ogg file with a different sound.
Clicking on an e-mail will cause popcheck to download the beginning of the file and display it in a kdialog message box. This way you can look at the start of an e-mail (up to 30 lines) without opening your e-mail client to download the message.
