  I completely agree with this.  I certainly wouldn't want to copy mail
email account configuration to several programs.  Not to mention
duplicated imap/pop connections, consuming bandwith.  Not to mention if
I have evolution download mails through pop, the external email
notitifcation program would be left with nothing to monitor.  But IMHO,
it's evolution that is at fault here.  A decent email notification
system should come built into evolution by default.  That sound
notification that it supports certainly doesn't count as 'decent'.
