IMHO one of the cool things about KDE's groupware cache Akonadi is that it synchronises and indexes your mail even if there is no e-mail software running. I always thought that one of the prime motivations for this is a message notifier that does not require a running mail application. But there is no such thing!
Or am I simply too stupid to find the settings? Things I am aware of:
- KMail's native notifications, which only work with KMail running.
- Plasmoids of IMHO somewhat poor quality, which do not work with Akonadi and do not integrate as nicely into KDE's notification system.
- A set of plasmoids dubbed Lion Mail developed by Sebastian Krüger would do the job. However, I found neither packages nor source on the web and even KDE PIM developers apparently don't have a clue about its status, so I assume it is dead.
So: Is there a mail notifier which only requires Akonadi and integrates nicely into the Plasma workspace? Please, I'm desperate! :)
