in thread Email Notification

msgmail.pl enables to communicate private messages via email, but doesn't answer the original question.

When i post a message in any discussion thread, i would like to receive an email once someone has posted an additional message in this discussion thread.

I this something that might be implemented in the future?

In the meantime, we could just have a little script that sends us an email anytime that someone has answered one of our messages. For doing that, it might be enough to check (every 5 minutes?) that the bit right under "Chatterbox" (the bit where it's written "And 4 more, 17 archived", and the bit right over it) has changed.

I might do it and share it at some point, but i'm overloaded with work at the moment and for a few months to come, so probably won't do this now. If anybody has the energy and will, don't hesitate to ask if you didn't understand how it checks whether you received an answer to a message. It's really dead simple.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I hate when i'm in a rush to get an answer, to come back every 5 minutes to check if i got an answer...until i get an answer 2 hours later... and i've spent all this time checking, for nothing.

How does this sound?

Did i miss a script or CPAN distro that does this already?
