currently there is only the backend implemented, evolution emits a
message on the session dbus (used for communication between programs) if
new mail arrives....(you can see this messages by running dbus-monitor
in a terminal)
...whats missing is the listening part of this game....
i'm the author of evonotify  and i'm planning to rewrite it in python
and want to make use of this dbus message, to have a working mail
notification frontend in breezy ....
(its not available as ubuntu package and wont work with gnome 2.10)
