This is an odd question.. When you use the 'mail' option in every linux system I've ever used, it would notify you that you had new mail. Whether it was when you logged in, or while you were logged in, you could get the "You have new mail" notification printed out in the terminal window above or below your command prompt. I'm not sure if I'm explaining that right.... but hopefully you get what I'm saying. I'm running the perfect Debian Sarge install from this site.. + ispconfig and postfix and all the goodies. Using a Maildir as well. What I need is some sort of notification that mail has arrived. As I'm SSH'd into the server all day, I have to occasionally run Mutt to see if I have anything in the Root mailbox. How do I get this notification to work? I assume it has something to do with using Maildir and Postfix with virtual users and whatever program is monitoring mail is looking at /var/spool/mail instead of ~/Maildir.
