Take advantage of push email servers in
Authored by: ctierney on Aug 25, '08 12:12:21PM

There is similar functionality for pop3 users. A finger request is sent to a user whenever mail arrives for that user. Client software listening on port 79 can then tell your email program to check mail. Works very well. I use a client called notifymail, that doesn't seem to be available anymore. But it is possible to write a script to do this.
