CheckOutlook is a Perl script to check mail on Microsoft's Outlook web based mail reader.
Version: 1.1.0CheckOutlook is a Perl script to check mail on Microsoft's Outlook web based mail reader. The script currently only checks for mail, and then logs out, printing the sender and subject of the message, if applicable. It can optionally play a sound. The script can be run in daemon mode, in which case it runs in silence until a message is received.
Operating System: Linux
Checking mail using CheckOutlook is a lot faster than starting up Firefox all the time, especially on the author's computer, and this script saves you from all the bothering session timeouts.
The program was intented as a way to study perl, and has been tested on one server only. It is at this moment uncertain to the author wether it will work for other configurations. Feedback will be appreciated.
