Very annoying fetchmail message previews

Post by Doogee »

I'm not sure if this is an issue with Fetchmail or with the thing that tells you have new mail (whatever the unix mail system is)

Ive set up fetchmail to check for mail using cron every 20 minutes, the problem is, instead of just getting an alert at the console saying i have new mail, i get this thing:

Code: Select all

New mail for daniel@dans-server has arrived:
From: EA Direct Australia <>
Subject: Final Fantasy X-2 - Out Now!
<html><head><title>Final Fantasy X-2 - Out
Now!!!</title><meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
charset=iso-8859-1"></head><body bgcolor="#000000"
leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0"
And i press enter and it dumps me back to a prompt.

I was wondering if i could disable this message so it just says "New mail for daniel" or "New mail from <sender>

Also it would be nice if i didnt have to press enter, it just displays the message and gives me a prompt.

Thanks :D
