Spam on my tv too! Fantastic!
Anyway, what will be checking the mail? The backend? If not, what platform?
I wrote something before to turn lights on and off when I had mail, but with the increase in spam it became pointless.
Also, then how do you have it filter by user? I like the VOSD idea, but there is a bunch of little issues with doing that...
* My wife does not want to see my mail - I also don't want her to see that I got a Newgg order confirmation in :)
* I don't want to see her email about this and that..
* I don't want to see notification for every mail from Mythtv-users (I love you guys, but sometimes its best to have a little time without).
* and on and on...
It would not be bad to whip up something in perl that checked accounts and sent VOSD signals. I would definitely limit it to a white list of senders and / or domains though.
The grail of integration would be a click "L" or whatever to view, then have it popup in a window onscreen :) - but that is beyond my skill level
