Still works in Mavericks, does exactly what it's supposed to do. VERY lightweight and non-taxing on the system. A little hard to set up and understand though, and sometimes the app will randomly quit, but it happens so rarely that it's barely an issue.

Macbiff is awesome for checking Gmail Priority Inbox with multiple accounts. Just tell it to disable/ignore all your other IMAP folders, monitoring the unread count of only "Important" folder. Given the volume of noise coming through my email inbox, I find this to be pure bliss.

Macbiff lacks the gloss and polish of other paid e-mail notifiers, but its minimalism is a welcome part of my daily workflow.

Plus, it is the only e-mail notifier I could find that could be configured to monitor only my Priority Inbox with multiple Gmail accounts.

Works well! But it should at least have the possibility to delate unwanted mail from the server...

If you already use Growl, GrowlMail (http://growl.info/growlmail) notifies you when you get new mail.

GrowlMail requires Mail to be running whereas MacBiff runs separately in the menubar and notifies you whether Mail is running or not.

Much nicer on system resources compared to running Mail all the time.
I personally couldn't live without MacBiff and I use it every single day.

Very handy little tool. I encounter a problem though!
On AIM Mail, the all the folders just get "disabled" after the first "check". Weird!

This is great! It successfully checks my imap mail and lets me know when there are new messages via message count. It even sorts out the folders, un-read messages and more. Perfect for what I needed and very un-obtrusive. Not perfect as the colors and icon never change, but I don't need that. Love the preview unread messages feature too. That way I don't run and check my webmail when spam arrives.

this rocks.
would love to see it integrate with functionality of gCount (gmail viewer... search here for more info) and ideally work as a plug-in for Adium.
There are too many POP3 checkers, and not enough work on IMAP !
