Well, this will indeed show a change in the spool, but it will not quite tell me if there are messages in it. The md5 check will go off when new mail arrives, but also when mail is read and removed from the spool. =)

    ahh, i was not thinking completely, thank you. However, you could hack a little checksum update onto the the close of your mail reader through a shell script :) Or, you could do like i do, and just keep a console with pine open all the time, and it will system beep when new mail arrives. Okay, sorry, this is perl discussion, i am just not sure if it is the right tool. -malloc
