dj adams continues his jabber series with A More Sensitive Mail Notifier

“Even if the user is connected, it might not always be appropriate to send messages. The user might be away from the computer for an extended period (even though the workstation is on and the Jabber client connected) or might simply not want to be interrupted (although as we’ve already discussed, on a Jabber client that supports them, arrival of “normal” type messages can be fairly unobtrusive).

As it stands, our script will send notifications whether the recipient wants them or not. It turns out that we can address this and the other flavors of insensitivity at the same time.”
