Unix mail notifications via Growl
Authored by: Michael_S on Jun 14, '11 11:18:06AM
Hmm, if you're sufficiently geeky (technically inclined) to run cron and mail, wouldn't you normally work with a shell in a terminal? The shell will happily tell you:
You have mail in /var/mail/username
$ 
Then read it with mailx like on any other BSD Unix. It appears that previous versions of Mail.app could read the local mail spool (presumably showing badges), but one now has to set up kluges.
