-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
it's been way too long since i've last worked on mail-notification. I

it from being merged w/o a name change(see ).
All in all, this is a great application that would benefit from a new
I sincerely hope someone will step up and will do whatever necessary
to bring SSL support back in (even if it implies renaming the package
and merging the GNUTLS patch in).
Of course, i'm willing to answer whatever question you might have and
even assist/comaintain if you will.
