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.


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!!!! :)
