Patch - New Mail Notification Sound
« on: November 21, 2006, 10:36:12 PM »
This is a small hack that uses the Javascript to Flash SoundManager API to play a sound when new mail arrives. It was patched against svn 380, but it should work for most releases.

I am not a programmer and I'm sure there are a million better ways to accomplish this. Hopefully this patch can help spark some interest in a better implementation.

Actually, it would be great if we could come up with a sound API to easily integrate with themes. If anyone has info on this please post.

KNOWN ISSUES:

Only plays sound when new mail arrives and all messages are marked as read.
Requires Flash.

Great! Works fine in SVN391

Remarks - I heard the sound twice.

Furthermore, it is strange that I heard the sound, I see a new item in the folder view, but the message list is still the older version (before I received the mail)

I have a question... how do i install this patch??  i am new to this and i have not idea how.  I have roundcube up and running great.  I customized it with all my logos.  But i would really like to be notified when i get new mail.  I want it to just "work" without having to install something on each computer that will use the webmail client.

Thank you in advance!!!! :)
