CommitLineData
1This plugin is used to notify the user when a new mail arrives. There are
2several ways to do this. One is to play a sound through the browser whenever
3the user has unseen messages flagged in the left window pane. There are options
4available (on the options page of course) to disable this feature for each user,
5and to select different media files from the users local computer. The default
6is that this is NOT enabled, so you'll need to go to the options menu to turn
7it on first! There are also options to show a popup window via JavaScript.
8
9Plugin options are visible only when JavaScript is enabled or detected by
10SquirrelMail JavaScript detection functions.

12From SquirrelMail 1.5.1 newmail plugin's site configuration can be stored in
13config/newmail_config.php or plugins/newmail/config.php.
14
15$allowsound setting is replaced with $newmail_allowsound and should be stored
16inside plugin's site configuration file.

18Plugin supports playback of WAV, SWF, MP3, OGG and SVG media files. Currently
19OGG and SVG files are played only by browsers that implement w3.org nested
20objects correctly and browsers that can play <embed> objects. Internet Explorer
21can't play them due to broken <object> implementation. OGG and SVG <object>
22elements specific to IE are not implemented.
