Check you imap inbox for new mails and notifies in your desktop

Project Description

Check you imap INBOX and notifies in your beautiful desktop.


I am trying different mail clients in my current companies and I want to keep up to date. Searching in different resources I decided to implement a mail notifier.

imap-checker works as a daemon polling your imap account and looking for new emails and notifying in your desktop using libnotify.


It works in any system with python 2.7.X and libnotify installed.


You have two options

  • Using pip:
pip install imap_checker
  • Clone github repo and install dependencies in requirements.pip file:
git clone


Simply copy imap_config.example and rename to .imap_conf in your home directory and change the host, user and password with your credentials.

Then execute:


And that’s it. If you want to stop, simply use:

imap_checker --stop.
