hi nicolas,
well this is exactly the same app :)
though the version i use is version 2.0 where the version in ubuntu is
1.1-3ubuntu-2. version 2.0 can work as a plugin for evolution, so you
dont check a mailbox somewhere on a server but evolution
checks/downloads the mail and mail-notify shows a neat icon if theres
new mail, gives a nice preview of the mails, etc.. 
the only thing i cannot figure out is the way to tell evolution it
should get focus. and if evolution is minimized, it should appear like
if you click on the taskbar to bring/get it on top.

sorry if my english sucks ;)
