I originally gave this app 5 stars in the heat of the moment, but I'm now giving it 1 to average it down to 3.

I'm taking off a total of 2 stars for:

1. My menulets "flickering" every time MUSB checks for mail.

2. MUSB's writing to Console > All Messages every time it checks for mail. (If the dev feels that this is a useful debugging procedure, MUSB should write to its own log.)

3. Dev's disdain for users...failure to respond to e-mails and posts.

4. The nicest icon's being hidden.

On a lark, I took a look at the developer's Japanese Website and found that most of the Japanese "Profile" page, the dev's e-mail address included, does not render on the English page.

Another post for the developer...

Is there any particular reason why MUSB must leave this message

9/23/12 10:27:08 PM MailUnreadStatusBar[819] UnreadCheck ()

in Console > All Messages EVERY time it checks for new mail, i.e. once a minute...1,440 times a day?

Thanks.

The e-mail address referenced on the developer's Web site is nowhere to be found, so I'm hoping to get the message to Garcia via MU.

I've noticed that when MUSB checks for new mail, the left-hand edge of its icon does a quickly reversed collapse in on the rest of the icon, and the icons to its left do a quick jiggle to their right, and back...about one millimeter in both instances.

This has happened with both the standard and non-standard icons with which I've experimented.

Is this expected behavior?

Thanks.

Great utility; delivers all it promises! (OS X 10.6.8)

A tip for aesthetically unsatisfied users...

To a greater or lesser degree, I hated all the icons MUSB offers as options, so I poked around in package contents and found an undocumented set of icons that is Asian in feel and so aesthetically pleasing that I'm totally mystified by why the developer chose to keep them hidden. (An Asian commentary on Western aesthetics?)

Here's how to bring them on board:

1. Navigate to /Applications/MailUnreadStatusBar.app/Contents/Resources.

2. Move any set, i.e. "icon" and "iconunread," of icons numbered from 1 to 4 aside by, for instance, appending an asterisk to their names.

3. Locate "baricon5.png" and "baricon5unread.png."

4. Change the two "5s" to the number of the set you moved aside.

5. Close the "Packages" window.

6. Quit and relaunch MUSB.

7. Select your new icons in MUSB > Set Mail Boxes ... > Setting.

8. Voila!

9. Enjoy. :)

Doesn't seem to work on my Mini with 10.6.4. When it checks for mail the menu bar icon just spins and spins and the Application has to be forced to quit.

Emailed developer with no response so far.

It's really nice to be able to see the mailbox by mailbox breakdown.

Clicking on a specific mailbox in the drop-down menu should open that mailbox in Mail.app; likewise, clicking a particular email should open that email in Mail.app. Instead, either action opens up a preview pane that includes all the new emails in a single list.

Checking the Growl preference brings up all the new emails in Growl but each one needs to be closed mechanically rather than close automatically after a fixed time. If you get tens of emails, this can be tedious.

"Set mailboxes" should probably be renamed "Preferences," although that is not entirely accurate either, since the preview of unread emails list is accessed in that window as well.

2 more items:

The number in the menubar does not match what I see in Mail.app.

Maybe the name could be replaced by a less unwieldy one.

Really very good menubar item ; this is a "killer app" ! Works with Growl. A must have.

The most recent version (0.6.5) crshes on launch under MacOS 10.5.3. I can't address any earlier version of MailUnreadStatusBar, but the current version doesn't even launch.
