Customize behavior of the mailbox replicant
As you know, double-clicking the mailbox icon in the Deskbar launches the folder
/boot/home/mail/in . But did you know that it’s not hard-linked to that destination? You can actually launch any program or file you like from this icon with a simple tweak.
Clicking the mailbox icon will cause BeOS to look in
/boot/home/mail for a symlink called “mailbox.” By default, that link just points to “in” folder. If you’d rather launch, say Mail-It or Postmaster, create a symlink to one of those apps in
/boot/home/mail and rename it to “mailbox.” Go nuts.
