Popexec is a program for UNIX and Linux that checks a POP e-mail account and then runs a program whenever new e-mail arrives.
The program can optionally run a program when it sees that you no longer have new e-mail in your POP box.
Examples are included to show you how to:
- Write "You have mail" or "You have 'X' new messages" to a terminal
- Make a terminal beep
- Play an audio file
- Pop an X window onto the screen
- Make your keyboard LEDs blink
- Change your desktop background (LAN)
