Released wmMultiPop3-0.9 and moved website to Sourceforge.

Website has moved to a new location.

New release. You can now run a command on new mail. And some bugs were fixed. Download wmMultiPop3-0.8 now!


wmMultiPop3 is a WindowMaker dockapp, written by me, Daniel Sundberg, which checks one or more pop3-accounts for new mail. It's based on wmPop3, written by Scott Helden. I've added support for multiple pop3 accounts (a few while-loops and some changes in the config-file parsing routines).

The great thing with these modifications is that now I only need one dockapp instead of the three copies of wmPop3 which have cluttered my desktop for a while.

Some screenshots

Here is all you need to know about using wmMultiPop3:

1: Indicates that you got new mail. Left mouse click here will launch your mailclient.
2: Indicates if automatic mailchecking is turned on (green = on).
3: Number of new mail in mailbox displayed in (8).
4: Total number of new mail.
5: Change mailbox displayed in (3) & (8).
6: Check for new mail.
7: Turn automatic mailchecking on/off.
8: Identifier for current mailbox.

In wmMultiPop3-0.7 (and above versions) you can specify commands which will be executed upon a mouseclick inside the dockapp. You can specify separate commands for all three mouse-buttons. In wmMultiPop-0.8 and above you can also specify a command which will be executed when you've got new mail.

Additional information:

Have a look at my ~/.wmmultipop3rc if you have problems with the configuration.


For support or if you have a question about this program: mail dss@home.se.


wmMultiPop3 seems to be quite stable at the moment. However, there are some things that should be done before a 1.0-release. For example wmMultiPop3 could use a configure-script.
