Even though i have a working USB ethernet adaptor ($12 at shentech.com) I've decided (due to wiring issues) to have my audrey just connect via the modem.
I have my kcrontab set up to check for mail at apropriate times (just before I wake up, and jsut before I get home from work) and it works just fine (nice flashing lights when I come home).
however it appears that it only 'checks' for mail and doesn't download it. I have to click get new mail (and initiate another call) to actually read the mail.
I tried running maild from the command line and it didn't appear to do anything (not even dial up) why is that?
I've read through over 6 months of archives here and can only find one other thread that asks the same question with no replies.
One clue I got was to use fetchmail and sendmail together, which appear to be pretty bulky.
any other ideas?
the only other option I have is to write my own pop3 client that dumps the files into /data/email/in/ and then flash the LEDs.
