Hi folks.

I've been looking for a decent "xbiff" type utility to monitor my MS
Exchange email server from my Ubuntu 11.10 desktop. Most of the GNOME utils
that I've found are buggy and don't behave very well IMO with libnotify.

Instead, I was trying to come up with a solution which would poll via IMAPS
& use purple-remote to IM myself when I have new mail. Does anyone have any
suggestions on implementing this?
