Re: Mail notification not working

I suggested a TRAP assignment to Chris, who asked,

| Ok, I understand what its trying to do, but since I'm stupid, where do I put
| it?  If I put it in my .bash_profile it works only when I'm logged in, but
| not when I'm logged in?

You put it into your .procmailrc above any delivering recipes, so that it
works when you receive email.

| I guess what I'm asking for is to have finger work when I'm not logged in.

If finger never works at all when you're not logged in, that's a different
problem.  I thought your question was how to make finger show the last time
you received email, including email that is delivered elsewhere than your
spool file.
