Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

As the question indicates, I am wondering if there is an easy way to automate getting my inbox messages via a script. I'm not able to visit each day (as my lack of "Fanatic" badge would indicate), but I'd like to know if someone left a message or a comment that is waiting for my response. I've looked into the API to do this, but I'm not so sure this warrants registering an app with SO...

Have you tried browsing around on Stack Apps? – animuson Nov 26 '12 at 5:22
Would receiving an email with unread inbox messages every three hours meet your needs? See the email settings in the inbox. – yhw42 Nov 26 '12 at 13:32
Thanks for the suggestions... I'll poke around with those features and see what I can make of it. It might be the easiest thing, even if it isn't exactly what I was looking for. – jheddings Nov 26 '12 at 16:16
