Mail Badger is a free plug-in for Apple Mail that lets you create multiple badges to Mail's dock icon, to indicate the number of messages in different mailboxes, or the number of messages that satisfy a set of conditions.

The main features include:

  • Create badges that indicate the number of unread, read, or total messages in a mailbox or group of mailboxes
  • Create badges that indicate the number of messages that satisfy a set of criteria (such as the number of messages from a particular e-mail address, or the number that contain attachments)
  • Create badges that take their value from an arbitrary block more...

What's New

Version 0.4:
  • Fixed a bug that occasionally caused random crashing when the badge was updated.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.5 or later

I want Mail Badger to exist again, now that DockStar is no longer available.

I will pay for it.

DockStar is a paid alternative, I'm a registered user and it works well for me.

Mail I would love to have the option to collect items from multiple folder, like Mail Badger does.

Was using this in Leopard, and now doesn't work in Snow Leopard. The developer's website only says something to the effect of "under construction" so there's no indication of if/when it will be updated.

Very dissapointing.

Sounds like a great idea; but if the developer won't update it, it's useless. Maybe somebody else should pick it up.

DOESN'T WORK ON SNOW LEOPARD

I would be very grateful if the developer could upgrade it.

There's an old saying: "You'll never miss your Mother until she's gone." Kind of how I am feeling on Snow Leopard without Mail Badger.

The good news is the developer is working on a SL release. Hopefully, we'll get it soon and can go back to not realizing just how much this makes our lives easier.

Well, I've moved onto DockStar. It works and it is ready now.

After weeks of waiting for a comment or a response, I gave up and moved on.

I love free apps and have donated to the few I use, but this really does underscore the difference between paid and free apps: responsiveness.

On the other hand, at least I can actually download Mail Badger, unlike DockStar, which constantly gives me "connection reset by peer" errors...

I don't know how I got along without Mail Badger. I have rules that automatically sort email to 2 of my email addresses into separate folders. With Mail Badger, I can have a badge for each folder, so I can see when I have new messages in either folder. It works great.

I can't get past the Installation destination pane when trying to install 0.4, does anyone have any advice?

To remove, go to users/user/library/mail/bundles and remove Mail Badger.mailbundle.

Causes hangs for me as well - taking a sample from Task Manager confirms it's Mail Badger at fault (seems to be trying to update the icon badge at the time).

Unfortunately I closed the sample window without saving it (doh!) so I don't have anything to send the developer until it does it again :(
