I have KBiff set up to run the "getmail" program for the
pre-polling command of an "mbox"-type mailbox. "getmail"
fetches all mail from my various POP3 accounts and
combines them into an mbox file in my home directory.
When KBiff polls for mail in this account, it behaves this
1. check mbox file for new mail
2. run pre-polling command
When does it run the pre-polling command AFTER it
checks whether I have new mail? I want it to run the
pre-polling command, wait until it's done, then check
the mbox file. Otherwise I have to wait 10 minutes (i.e.,
until the next poll) after it's run the pre-polling command
before it realizes that I have new mail.
