i want to implement something like yahoo messagenger does. When i get a new mail in my mail box yahoo messaenger alerts of new mail. how could this possibly be done. as soon as i get new mail i get an alert on my yahoo messanger. there could be two ways for doing this. 1. Reconnect to mail server in thread and get new message count after every few seconds. 2. Make a store listner and get notification. keeping a connection alive is not feasible in real time scenario. And making fast connections to mail server might not be a good way to get the thing done. does anyone have better solution to this.    More>>
