Looks nice, takes up little space, works well, good customization. But tracks the IN box, not all unread emails, so if you have rules set up to sort new mail, the widget will miss them. Suggestion: clicking on widget checks for new mail immediately.

Still opens Mail nicely but still gives no indication of waiting mail. That stopped several versions ago (iMac, OS 10.7.3)

Brilliant little widget! As another posted, it would be nice to be able to check multiple accounts with one instance of the widget though. Otherwise, it's simple, works great and I use it every day.

Some users report an issue after updating to Mac OS X 10.6.4. During installation Apple Mail gets updated and requires to update all mailboxes to work with the new version. However MailWidget seems to interfere this update process. To overcome this, please remove all instances of MailWidget from Dashboard. Launch Apple Mail from Spotlight or by finding it on the Volume and let it update the mailboxes. After that you can recreate your instances of MailWidget.

This widget does exactly what the developer says it does. No problems thus far, and it's great to finally not have to have Mail.app open all of the time. Thanks to the developer for continued widget development! Best Regards, JD

Thanks for dropping 10.4.x support, I'm going back to the older version and switch off the update function (if it's possible...)

That's why I previously announced that 3.08 will be the last version supporting Tiger. You can still get 3.08 from my homepage and disable auto update. Sorry for this but I cannot make selective update procedures for each Version of Mac OS X.

I like so much this widget. I had an issue with 3.0, and the developer was kindle, gentle in the emails helping me; and promptly did an improvement and updated the software. It was really good to interact with him, I felt participating part of it. I truly recommend to use it, because you can check all emails account you have, instead of only Gmail, as you can do in the commons notifies; or leaving the Mail open. In addiction, the Leopard Mail icon is neat on dashboard ;)

Doesn't work for me. Have logged out, logged back in. Won't inform me of new mail. The old version did, this one doesn't. OS 10.5.6 and 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

I'm running Firefox 3.0.7 (widget was d/l with Speed Download) I tried the latest Safari beta and it wiped out my read/write privileges on my iMac so it's been erased.
