How to Uninstall and Install wmail Ubuntu 22.04

Updated: October 10, 2022

wmail is a Window Maker docklet watching your inbox, which is either a ordinary mbox or a directory conforming to qmail’s Maildir format. It provides a nice little GUI displaying some useful pieces of information about your inbox (as many other nice wm-apps doing nearly the same thing…). Per default it uses the $MAIL environment-variable to locate the inbox you are using, other mailing mechanisms like POP or IMAP are not supported - use a tool like fetchmail to retrieve POP- or IMAP-based mail. In this tutorial, I will show you how to install wmail on Ubuntu 22.04.

Prerequisites

  • Operating system: wmail needs Ubuntu 22.04 to work
  • Privileges: Verify that you can execute the sudo commands line.
