Mail Notification is a status icon (aka tray icon) that tells you if you have new mail. It works with system trays implementing the System Tray Specification (ie the GNOME Panel Notification Area, the Xfce Notification Area, and the KDE System Tray). Current features include multiple mailbox support, mbox, MH, Maildir, Sylpheed, POP3 and Gmail support, automatic detection of mailbox format, automatic notification, and HIG compliance.
