ZimbraNotify

by pbruna

ZimbraNotify, Linux Toaster wannabe, works on the system tray checking and notifying about new emails. The information is accessed thorough Zimbra's ATOM feeds.

This is the first and last version of this software, now im working in a SOAP based version. This way the ZimbraNotify could do much more, like:

  • Fast “Mark As” Messages,
  • Appointment notifications,
  • Quick Contact Search.
  • and much more.

ZimbraNotify is based on checkgmail by Owen Marshall, checkgmail.sf.net.

This is a Perl application, so you will need some modules. When you run ZimbraNotify from the command line it'll tell you if you have missing modules.

Once all the needed modules are installed, you will need to enter the login information on dialog gui. Next ZimbraNotifywill start notifying you about new emails.

Also there is more info in the Zimbra Wiki: http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=ZimbraCheck

I like how customizable this is, being able to change the icons, time to check email, commands to run when you click the icon, get mail, or have no mail. For how customizable it is, its also very simple

Only one drawback is it only notifies you of new email in the inbox. If you have filters that auto organize your mail, you miss alerts on those messages.

This does require a few dependencies on Ubuntu 10.04, command below.

It may require more, but these were the ones it bugged me about. after I installed those, everything worked fine!

Would love to see a version that checks all folders

Run this command to get it working on 10.04, most likely works on other versions of Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install libgtk2-trayicon-perl libxml-simple-perl libcrypt-ssleay-perl
