Some time ago, kov and I started to play with winpopup messages via samba. We intended to receive messages in linux from windows systems at our university. Unfortunately, my student life did't left me finish. But today, I needed to. We have some windows machines at work, and the only way to comunicate internally is via winpopups. I made some modifications in my part of the program that reads the message and formats it to send to the 'reader' via unix sockets. The reader is a gnome-panel applet that blinks in the tray when a message has arrived. As I'm not using GNOME there, I needed to adapt to my needs. I made it format the message and append to the mbox file, so that I could read it with Evolution. The code is a little ugly, but it worked quite well...
