I'm using Evolution for reading my emails at my Ubuntu 9.10.
I would like to run a personalized command when it receives a mail, like checkgmail.

Example: blink --scrolllockled --rate {number-of-new-mail}

Is it possible?

Yes, you can create filters in Evolution that run commands.

I used this to suck out emails from a Microsoft Exchange server (that had IMAP disabled) - a filter-rule running deliver on new emails, followed by a filter-rule that marked the email as read.

It is called "Pipe to program" in the documentation.
