# libnotify notifications
# Requires libnotify-bin package
notify_cmd = "/usr/bin/notify-send -i /usr/share/icons/Human?/scalable/emblems/emblem-mail.svg"
if num >= 1
	notify_summary = "sup found #{num_inbox}/#{num} new message"
	notify_summary << "s" if num > 1
	notify_body = ""

	from_and_subj.each do |f,s|
		f.gsub! /\(.*\)/, ''
		f.gsub! /<.*>/, ''
		f.strip!
		s.slice! 0..20
		s << "..."
		notify_body << "▶ #{f} : #{s}\n"
	end
	if notify_body.length > 100
		notify_body.slice! 0..100
		notify_body << "\n..."
	end

	cmd = "#{notify_cmd} '#{notify_summary}' '#{notify_body}'"
	Logger.warn cmd
	system cmd
else
	#system "#{notify_cmd} 'sup status' 'No new email (yet)'"
end
