Poco and email notifiers

Postby Rui » Mon Oct 11, 2004 7:47 pm

Hi all

Considering Pocobot limited functionality as an e-mail notifier, has anyone tried using a different e-mail notifying application with Poco? Any suggestions concerning e-mail notifiers? Do Poco users consider such kind of applications as convenient and useful?
Best regards.

Hi,

I use PopTray (freeware): http://www.poptray.org/

It has it's own forum.

Cheers,
Ron

I use SimpleCheck ( www.simplecheck.net ) - not freeware but not expesive. Has a filters facility that lets you do on-server spam filtering.

Hi Ron and Robin

Thank you very much for your input!
I am currently trying Pop Tray, as suggested by Ron. Seems a nice application.
I will also try Simple Check.
In the meantime, I will appreciate it if any other forum users have other valuable suggestions, or experiences to share about this topic.
And I'll keep you posted.
Once again, thanks a lot.
Best regards
Rui

Sorry, but why would you want to use a notifier, why not use the mail program directly?
Kind regards

Here's two

- not everyone wants to leave their e-mail program running all the time (can take a lot more memory than a dedicated POP checker)
- SimpleCheck (for example) can check any number of accounts; each of which might have their own separate PocoMail "User" (for example my wife, my daughter, I and the "family" each have different PocoMail Users - SimpleCheck will check each of them on a defined schedule without any danger that messages for my wife get downloaded to me etc).

Another third reason, besides the two ones given by Robin in the previous post:

Having a dedicated e-mail notifiier can increase your productivity as well as spare you some time. Instead of having Poco running all the time (or opening and closing it periodically), with an adequate mail notifier you can preview the just arrived message, and decide what to do about it (reply immediately, leave on server, etc) Some mail notifying aplications can also be configured to function as mail filters. In some other ones, you can even set a customized sound alert, according to the message sender, associating a certain wave file to a specific sender. All these possibilities may increase your productivity, especially if you run a small office, which happens to be my case.
Best regards

I use the suppress notification feature of Poco to enhance productivity. I only get notified on mail that lands on the inbox Listservs and other things that aren't that important are supressed.
