       Mailsound - Play sounds when mail arrives


       Mailsound [options]


       Mailsound is an rplay utility used to play sounds when mail arrives.  Different sounds can
       be played depending on the contents of mail message headers.  Mailsound  configuration  is
       stored  in  the  file  ~/.Mailsounds.   Each  line  in  this file contains a perl5 regular
       expression followed by rplay attributes.  See the EXAMPLE section below.

       Mailsound needs to be invoked upon mail arrival.  This can be done in many ways, but  most
       users  will probably use either a .forward or .procmailrc file.  With a .forward file, use
       something like:

           \yourusername, |"/usr/local/bin/Mailsound -h soundhostname"

       For .procmailrc use:

           :0 ic
           | /usr/local/bin/Mailsound -h doctor:doit


       --host=hostname[:hostname ...]
              Play sounds on the specified host(s).

              Specify an alternate configuration file.

              Default volume for all sounds.

              Default priority for all sounds.
