I wanted to post some progress screenshots of something a coworker and I have been working on. This is partly derived from the gmail setup script from the wiki, but has been extended to support configuration through the web admin and will let you setup email/sms notifications in Respond to Events. Well, screenshots are always fun so enjoy. I'll post a patch for this soon.
There are some common accounts that automate the setup, those are GMail, Hotmail, and Yahoo currently and can easily be extended.
If your provider isn't supported with automatic setup, you can plug in your settings and it will simply work.
You'll notice the device is Mailx, this will be changed to be included in the General Info Plugin once I have a full builder running. It was originally created as a new device simply because I was not able to compile the General Info Plugin.
Would appreciate some feedback on this.
