There are only a few such Apple Mail menu bar notifiers available, and all but this one have issues that make them either incompatible with the latest update to Mavericks, or they have other problems.

Mail Satellite is the best menu bar notifier I have found yet for Apple Mail. But it still amazes me that after all these years, Apple fails to simply add this to OS X.

Pourquoi un délai aussi long entre l'arrivée d'un nouveau message et sa prise en compte dans la barre des menus (7 à 10 secondes)

Excellent menu bar app for Mail. Getting new features constantly (though simple settings suffice for this user) and from what I see, actively developed. Low footprint, stable and reliable.

I just wonder why does its name keeps on changing:
Version 1.7 - Mail Menu
Version 1.7.1 - Mail Menu Extension
Version 1.7.2 - Mail Satellite

Kudos to the dev for offering this free of charge!

This is officially an awesome utility. Mail sorely needs a menubar status icon, and Mail Menu Extension fills that need. The new version allows me to limit the display of new messages to inboxes only, which was the feature I needed. So far it's worked flawlessly, and at the price of free it's a fantastic deal. The only improvement I'd still like to see is an option for a blue status colour, not just red.

The (friendly) developer has already updated his software to v1.6 to work with Mavericks OS 10.9.2.

Works like a charm!

Can someone explain me how this software should work? It says without opening Mail, but it works only if I open Mail…

I like it a lot. The only thing stopping me from using it is that it counts messages in all folders in my mail accounts, rather than just counting messages in the inboxes. I contacted the dev, who said that an option to limit the message count to inboxes is in the works.

Right-click menu icon / Preferences / Mailboxes.

I tried that. Under "Mode" it shows All Mailboxes, and everything is grated out so that when I try to click the little triangles at the right side to change the Mode, nothing happens.

I contacted the dev, who said to wait for the next update for this functionality to be enabled. He described Mail menu as a "work in progress."

As Mail Unread is being updated I gave this a try and it's great!
