First of all, thanks! I had need for a plugin just like this and I see
it’s only a few days old!
If the author(s) are reading, maybe down the road we could have a
little more control over how the Jabber messages that are sent look.
For example, I don’t need to see “A new email has been received” for
the IM (and for some reason for each email I get two of these). You
could have options to display the sender, subject, body, or other email
Oh, and giving it the ability to delete email it has already
sent would be a bonus. I envision using a unique email account for this
plugin to send notices to. As such, a human will never be logging into
it unless it is to clear out the old messages in the Inbox.
Also, waaaaaay down the road it might be nice to define mutiple email
addresses to check so that different accounts can be monitored and
different combinations of users notified based on them. I have no need
for something that complex, but I can see where others might.
1/8/08 - I’ve had problems with this plugin sending notifications, I believe it’s having problems with the IMAP server I’m using. The IMAP server is reporting lots of “connection open too long, closing” problems in the log. The first email is correctly forwarded via Openfire, any other messages are not. I’ve tried both increasing and decreasing the check interval without success. Does the plugin make use of IMAP-IDLE, that would probably be the best way, although not all servers make use of it?
