I really can't think of a more convenient way to get new mail notifications than re-alpine's new message message, which beeps. Now that I'm using MIX mailboxes, I can't seem to find a mail notification program a'la xbiff to notify me when new messages are available. So, I really need re-alpine perform that role.
Re-alpine notifies on the first new message. I'd like subsequent new e-mails to also produce the notification message, but re-alpine suppresses them all the time. My journal is full of "2 new messages....[ not actually shown ]" logs. Please implement an option to force new message notification on all checks that find new messages.
