I don't know if it is part of IMAP protocol or just a UWIMAP
bell/whistle, but with UWIMAP if you create a file /etc/imap.alert, a
window will pop up on the client every time you do any imap action.
1) very annoying
2) perfect for emergencies
The message must be short. Dunno if it works somehow with webmail..........
