Re: [Evolution] sound on mail

i did post the patch a while back to the list (look in the
evolution-users archives on 08.29.2001). it's also attached to bug #437:

attachment id=347 is the most current version of the patch.

In defense of the Ximian folks, it must be said that there don't seem to
be many requests for this feature in the bug database, so maybe not that
many people care.  I'm pretty sure it will be added after 1.0 is
released, though.

If you are up to compiling Evolution yourself, you could take advantage
of Jon Nall's patch to add this feature, which is included in bug #856:

I thought he had posted a newer version of the patch on the mailing
list, but I'm not sure.  I know I'll be doing this once 1.0 comes out. 
For now I'm (just barely) content to download the prebuilt snapshots.

Meanwhile, you can do what I do--turn off auto mail-check in Evolution,
and then add the Gnome Mail Check applet to your Gnome panel, and have
it play your sound for you.  When mail comes in, have Evo retrieve it.

Hope this helps.
