xlock which displays mail-status?
Posted on 1998-07-02
Is there an xlock (similar program, new version or flag) which displays the mail status of the user which locked the screen? (sort of like xlock and xbiff combined)
If so, where?
Let me describe it in more detail: Usually, if I read/write something in my office, the screen of my (unused) machine locks after 10 minutes. If I then leave the office for a few minutes and come back, I have to unlock xlock just to know whether I have new mail or not. It would be nice to see somehow on the still locked screen if there is new mailed for the logged in (and locked) user, so that I wouldn't have to unlock the screen.
