It was lunchtime, & I was broswing the web, I stumbled across a \$HOME of gnome applications http://gnomefiles.org/ and there in the top 10 most popular applications something caught me eye... what was Mail Notify?
After a short broswe of the pojects home page, I was already searching for a RPM to install, and to my suprise those smashing people on the Fedora Extra's team have already made one ! ...
I loaded it up & this is great ! a system tray application that can check multiple mail accounts (including gmail), and it don't look half bad either !
I'd definatley recommend it ! :D
