hello all. couple questions for you. My situation: I am on several
mailing lists and wish to direct the mail to separate folders. The main
problem is that I don't get alerted when new mail arrives since it is not
put in my inbox. How do I get procmail to do this? I've tried touching
my inbox file to fool my system into thinking I got new mail in my inbox,
but it didn't work.
You could use the `newmail' program which was provided with elm. If you
don't have elm installed you could check the extracted `newmail' package
on which I hope to work again soon...
Just call it like "newmail boxa boxb boxc" and it will notify you whenever
a new mail has arrived in one of these mailboxes.
