For sending and receiving you mails, with the famous mail client mutt, insert the following lines into your ~/.muttrc
set smtp_url = “smtp://email@example.com:587/”
set smtp_pass = “password”
set from = “firstname.lastname@example.org”
set realname = “Your Real Name”
you can also use fetchmail to get your mail automatically.
so, edit the ~/.fetchmailrc and add the following :
poll smtp.gmail.com protocol imap user “username” password “password” mda “/usr/bin/procmail -d %T” ssl
That’s great if we will receive notification when a new mail arrived.
for that add the following lines into a shell script, we will name it checkmail.
$ cat >checkmail<<EOF
if [ “$1” = “-v” ]; then
fetchmail -a -K $EXTRAARG >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ “$?” = “0” ]; then
DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/notify-send -t 0 -u critical -h “int:x:168” -h “int:y:100” -i /home/mezgani/photo/mail.jpg “السلام عليك” “New mail received”
Ok, right now we will define an entry to crontab, which will call the checkmail script every 5min.
of course change the path /home/handrix/bin/checkmail by the emplacement of the script in you host.
*/5 * * * * /home/mezgani/bin/checkmail
And i got this every mail arriving
