View Full Version : email menubar/growl notifier?

26th May 2010, 01:53 AM
hi all,

does anyone know of a widget/app that will notify me of new emails (or tell me how many new emails are in my inbox) along the menubar and/or using growl too?

this is to monitor hotmail and gmail - not pop3.

thanks in advance,

Sounds like you want Notify, though I'm not sure if it supports Hotmail.

Notify 2.1 – An awesome email notifier for Mac OS X. – Vibealicious (http://vibealicious.com/apps/notify/)

Hotmail and gmail both have pop3/smtp capability these days. Why not set them up in Mail.app and then you'll have your unread messages in your dock and can also make use of growl notifications.

I'm currently using notify 2 for most things but mail.app for everything else.

I tried thunderbird and postbox and they're not what I want.

Oh, get rid of hotmail. :p
