Running e-mail client - how?

Post by piter » Tue Dec 12, 2006 5:14 pm

Is there any way to run e-mail client from plug-in?
I want to write plug-in, which shows message-box "You've got e-mail. Do you want to run e-mail client?" and if user selects YES - then it will run e-mail client.

Isn't this already done without the need for a plugin?

PopTray, OPTIONS, GENERAL OPTIONS, check the box for INFO BALLOON ON NOTIFICATION

and

PopTray, OPTIONS, USER INTERFACE, check the box for ADVANCED SHOW INFO

SAVE OPTIONS, QUIT PopTray and RESTART for changes to take effect.

Then when PopTray finds email a balloon notification box pops up showing the emails that have arrived and there is a place to click RUN EMAIL CLIENT in that box also.

Yes, it is, but if somebody works is full-screen dos-mode then he won't be able to see anything... ;-)

And if you create a plugin... the very same arguement you just made would also be true for the plugin.
