<Code Snip>

This is something that's VERY VERY VERY VERY easy to do, but
I'm sending this to the list in case some newbie wants
to know how to do it, or someone just hasn't thought of it

In interpreter.c (search for reconnecting):

  switch (mode) {
  case RECON:
    SEND_TO_Q("Reconnecting.\r\n", d);
+   if (has_mail(GET_IDNUM(d->character)))
+      send_to_char("You have mail waiting.\r\n", d->character);
    act("$n has reconnected.", TRUE, d->character, 0, 0, TO_ROOM);
    sprintf(buf, "%s [%s] has reconnected.", GET_NAME(d->character), d->host);
    mudlog(buf, NRM, MAX(LVL_IMMORT, GET_INVIS_LEV(d->character)), TRUE);

Add the two + lines, every time you reconnect it will check to
see if you have new mail, and if you do it will tell you.
(This is helpful if your mud doesn't crash every few hours (like mine)
so that you will know if you have mail each time you reconnect.)

I hope this works for yah:)
