When a new message arrives, Kmail has ability to speak! Which is great but not enough: I don't want to listen to a standard text but have a proper functionality:

When a new message arrives, Jovie should say

New Message arrived from Linus Torvalds

(if Linus Torvalds is in the Address Book, falling back to email@domain without the TLD .com)


Email about %MSG_SUBJECT

Is that possible?

  • Sorry for not answering in so long. I did look into this, and it seems the kmail notifications don't provide that detailed information. Here I can set the kmail new message notification to say either "New mail has arrived" or some custom text or "new mail has arrived x in folder y..." but nothing about sender. I suggest filing a bug against kmail for this wish to be added then we can handle speaking that detailed information.
