I'm looking for an email tool to monitor my POP3 mailboxes. I'd like something that could run in the background and let me know when a new message has arrived. Ultimately, I'd like to be able to click on a message in a list and have Sylpheed open up so that I could read and answer. All this without removing the message from the server or storing it locally permanently.
I use a Windows tool named Magic Mail Monitor that does a great job of this. I've run it under Wine on DSL, but it really flickers. I'm betting that there have got to be some great email tools for Linux and I'm hoping you guys can point me to one or two.
Also, does anybody know any real good generic Linux forums where I might ask questions like this? I hate to be more of a burden to you than I need to be and I know that there have got to be more appropriate places to learn the basics.
