A real shame it won't be supported with Sierra. If anyone finds an alternative please let us know.

"Herald" functions very well and is a good replacement for our good beloved DockStar. Seeing (or may I better say TRYING") is believing.

Not having Dockstar support and the removal of PPTP (PPTP) from Sierra has been the 2 stumbling block for me to upgrade to Sierra. Good to hear there maybe some interest from SmallCubed. I remember going through this before when I first bought DockStar from Ecamm and then they decided to give up on it and had to wait for Creative in Austria to take it on. Come on SmallCubed you can do it ; )

Sorry to say the author of DockStar has let me know that it will not be updated to work in OS X 10.12.x (Sierra). I'll miss DockStar.

Thats's awesome news as I've bought a Dockstar license for 21 Euro only 8 months ago.... NOT. . I really feel I've been conned by the developer.

Lounge Deluxe: it's not really the developer's fault if Apple's new OS and Mail versions makes it impossible to create a reliable application of this sort.

That could be true but the developer does not refer to that in the statement on his website, so we're basically speculating here.

I received today an alert from Creative in Austria for version 4.0.2 which works well with Capitan 10.11.1. I recommend.

I used this app for years, before it was taken over by Creative in Austria. CiA revived the app, but levied a fresh charge for existing users, despite promises having been made that this wouldn't happen. What's more galling still, though -- and why I would urge users to steer clear of this app -- is that CiA is charging a fee for users of the Yosemite version to upgrade to a version that works on El Capitan. The two versions are otherwise the same, and this is completely unacceptable. I would strongly urge people not to buy this software, as the developer's actions are utterly indefensible. Rip-off merchants like this don't deserve business.

The latest version is 4.0 for El Capitan. The minimal upgrade is chargeable. The unread mail count in version 4.0 sometimes works, sometimes doesn't.

There is version that is reported to be compatible with El Capitan at: https://www.creativeinaustria.com/DockStar. It's a paid upgrade…not sure if I'll spring for it or not.

The original developer stopped development but wrote me this, "Those customers (as well as all our others) will receive a free update when the new version is available with the new developer." The new developer wrote me this, "To recover development costs I break this promise. " I say DON'T BUY!
