Sorry, Colin, but it is not really the case that my privacy expectations 
are "that" high.

Moreover, instead of the technically advanced solution that you 
suggested, I would
rather use the relatively simpler solution of using webmail. As I 
explained in my first post, such a solution is already available as a 
Thunderbird add-on (under the name Webmail Notifier, although it is 
something more than a simple notifier), and it works great. Why can't we 
have the same thing in Claws Mail?
