Description:

MailKount is an applet for Kicker that regularly checks the number of mails on one ore two pop/imap servers and sends notifications on new messages.
This tool is mainly useful for people who are using webmail and not a mail client such as the very good KMail.

Note that default language for GUI is english. Screenshots show a french GUI just because I'm french and I made french translation.

Please, see homepage for more details.

Let me know if you see some bugs ;)

For next version, I would like to implement SSL but I don't have any email address providing this service. If you know a free email website with SSL+POP+IMAP support, let me know please ;)

NB : version 0.1 may cause some trouble because network queries are synchronous. Please, don't use version 0.1.

Version 0.3.1 :
- Correction of a stupid bug : if you have two boxes and receive 1 mail only on the first box, there was no notification... human error. Sorry!
- Thanks japc for the "EXAMINE" command ;)

Version 0.3 :
- IMAP support added. Requested by jirityr ;)

Version 0.2 :
- Add the ability to choose the color of the font, as requested.
- And much more important, a complete rewrite of the network part using only Qt stuff. The result is now that querying DNS and Socket connection are asynchronous and don't block kicker when connection is down, which was a huge bug of version 0.1.

Version 0.1 : initial release.

i use opensuse 10.2. mailkount hangs my kde whenever i select check now. first only the kicker not responding (ctrl+alt+backspace helps), then the whole system not responding (i have to push the reset button at this stage).

Yes, I found and it's a bad pb.

If the server exists (DNS says YES) but does not respond ... the applet is waiting forever.

I tried many fixes but timers seems to interact :/

Sorry for that, I keep try to find a good solution.

BTW, it's not KTorrent ... my KDE on my desktop restarts when he decides to restart o_O'

Outch, I'm sorry for the troubles.

Well, the problem must be my way of getting the number of new messages... I could test only with my provider.
But it's strange because I test every step of connection ... I tried with false servers, bad login, bad pass and it reacted well with me.

BUT! Since I let it run some hours without testing all day long (which means /configure make and make install every 10 minutes), I had two strange automatic restart of KDE o_O'''.

I admit I don't understand because it's not a low level program and ... the code is very very minimalist.

Now I removed it from my kicker and if I don't have any strange reboots in some hours ... it think I will have to change some things ... but I don't know where :/

Ok, so the reboots of KDE for me are not due to mailkount, but ktorrent!
