Thread: Messaging Applet for KDE?

  1. #1

    Question Messaging Applet for KDE?

    I've been using Mint/Cinnamon for several years for one reason: the messaging applet. It's the one piece of software that I use frequently,
    and every day. Logging into my particular email provider on imap (Cincinnati - fuse.net) requires multiple clicks and pages for I guess security
    reasons, and that app gets around all of that. But I'm having trouble with Mint 17 and graphics on my desktop machine. Gnome 3 has a
    similar application in some versions, but every Gnome update kills all the extensions.

    What it does is to open a sendmail window when I click on an icon. I fill in the address (it reads my Thunderbird data base and autocompletes)
    and text and if appropriate, a link of interest or attachment, and then lets me send it with one more click and closes when done. No muss, no fuss.
    I specifically want to avoid the much more extensive process of keeping an email client open and downloading endless emails, having lost some
    3000 emails that way during an upgrade once. I have searched extensively for similar functionality in KDE, to no avail. Does anyone have a
    suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kmail in either KDE3 or KDE4 incarnations will certainly handle email, it
    is not clear if you will also want kpim and the rest of the gang along
    with them.
