It is free and it is a must have for Apple Mail in my opinion. Still works with High Sierra and Mail 11.5. You do need to download the free app, MailPluginFix, and use this to fix this plugin to then work.

Mail 3.0 marks Mail Unread Menu as incompatible. It works, but Mail bundle installation is required every time Mail is relaunched. With Magnesium-app's Mail Satellite there's no such problem ($10).

I have relied on this app for years and was bummed when it stopped working (thank you Apple). Scottlep's fix is working perfectly (so far) for me running 10.9.4 and Mail 7.3 Thanks. "...Download https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37804/mailpluginfix which will fix the UUID of the app and let it work with Apple Mail 7.2. You will need to reload the Mail Unread Menu bundle, then run the mailpluginfix app to update the UUID for the MUM app for Mail 7.2. You will probably have to do the same if Apple updates to 7.3 anytime in the future."

So I have an older iMac, running 10.9.2, and this is what I get when I try to install this goodie: Mail has disabled the following plug-ins: MailUnreadMenu Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.2 and Message 7.2 So, I don't know, me thinks this app needs to be updated.

Apple's Mail is a rare if not unique e-mail client in that it doesn't have a badged menu icon, which (at least for those users who prefer to keep the Dock hidden when not in use) is indispensible. This utility makes good the lack.And note this: if you use a "broken version" after an upgrade it will insert a plugin and tell you the installation was successful. Then Mail will put up a window saying that it has rejected an incompatible pplugin. Then the icon will appear in the menubar and work just fine anyway.

I'm amazed Apple doens't provide this feature, thankfully there's Mail Unread Menu. As most experienced mac users have their dock hidden, the most obvious way to see if new mail has arrived is by unhiding the dock (by mousing or shortcut) to see if there's any red badges on the Mail icon. This can be fairly disruptive for people like me compared to just a quick glance at the menubar. This plugin also has an edge over the dock icon by allowing you to display a badge only for the mailboxes you need to keep an eye on. That's a feature Apple would be unlikely to implement, so i hope they never create a menubar icon for mail at all, as the 3'd party product they end up killing is often superior in terms of functionality (eg. Desktop Manager). Lots of apps put some stuff in the menubar, but very few is as useful as this one, and the price is unbeatable (but donate if you want to show your appreciation). I've been using this plugin for years, and it hasn't given me any problems so far. A nobrainer install in my humble opinion, and a solid 5 across the board.

I've been using this excellent little program for some years: it's unobtrusive but tells me about new mail at a glance. Logan is a very responsive developer. I told him of my experience with the flickering icon (not just the MUM icon but everything to the left of it in the menubar): he responded within minutes and had the problem fixed in a few days.

3.3 seems to peg Mail's CPU usage at 100% giving me a beach ball with occasional access to the GUI (Mail's GUI). That's on my 2011 i7 MBP running 10.7.2. I had the flickering issue in the previous version (3.2.x?), but didn't have the current issue. Anybody else having such a problem? Reinstalled and rebooted a couple times for good measure, problem persists.

I don't really want to change the fact this mail plugin is free but you might consider using the "pintware" model that Turly uses for the excellent finderpop. I used to use another paid for mail menu item, which wqs good but over complicated and expensive. If this item was .99 or even 1.99 I think a lot of people would pay. of course they would then have expectations, but I think the developer lives up to those anyway. This is a great app/utility and now is on all our macs. It works great in Lion and recent updates have made it even better....5 stars

The "see subject line" option is really really useful and appreciated (if it doesn't slow down Mail). If you have many emails it might be helpful moving MUM commands to the top of the menu. An alternative option to have subject lines pop-up when cursor hovers over a particular mailbox name - RSS style - would be great. Thank you for a great product.

I love this program and it worked great in Leopard. I like to have my dock hidden and it is good to be able to see the mail count in the task bar. However, now in Snow Leopard it only opens whenever it wants. One way to get it to work is to open it before you open mail, otherwise it is just a roll of the dice. And mine is set to launch and quit when Mail launches and quits. Great in Leopard, not so great in Snow Leopard...

I have worked around MUM's "launch when Mail launches" setting. Using the great keyboard shortcut app iKey, I set up a shortcut so that when Mail launches, 3 seconds later MUM launches. This time delay has ended MUM's automatic quits. For those of you who use other shortcut apps (e.g. Spark), you may want to experiment with them. When MUM works, it has better features than all the other unread-mail-tracking apps.

This is definitely the WORST program I've ever tried for mac. Not only messes up your Mail.app , but for example your computer will not be able to sign out, restart or shut down while the program is running because when shut down tries to kill Mail.app the notifier relaunches it and you get the famous message: Mail notifier app did not let you shut down the computer, please try again. This app is HORRIBLE, do not download it or install it. That is my recommendation.

When I start MUM first and then Mail app, it's in the menu bar, but it doesn't count anything. The whole app freezes and also Mail becomes slow, sometimes totally unresponsive, only force quit can solve this... Tested on MBP Core Duo, 10.5.2... Waiting for an update, I hope next time it will work better.

I have no idea why the mail app doesn't have this built-in, I don't think I would be able to live without this. I've been a long time user of this and it's only getting better. New ability to add your own icons, launch when Mail app launches without having to add a login item, and Unseen Mail. My only complaint is the stability, on 10.4.11 it sometimes hangs.

I assume Mail has to be running for this plugin to get its info? Forgive my ignorance, but why not just look at the Dock? Why clutter the menubar with something that you should be able to get just by looking DOWN instead of UP?

I don't see a choice for icons.. I see the regular icon and one just black patch in the shape of the icon (which is the choice perhaps?). That of course is pointless. So I am curious where these icons are?

Thanks for the feedback about this problem. A ton of people reported it on the official forums, and it's been fixed in version 2.1.1 which is now available. Thanks.

Further testing has whittled down the problem as follows: when Mail.app has no new messages to report, Mail Unread Menu gives me "1." Otherwise, MUM is accurate and, as intended, simultaneous.

Current version doesn't update number of unread mails instantly with changes in Mail.app. Even dropping down menu and selecting the marked mail does not force MUM to update its count. Previous was more reliable about this. Also, this and previous version occasionally force Mail.app instantly to reopen after you've closed it. 2 GHz Intel Core Duo/OS 10.4.8

How about open-sourcing it so people can add the features they want?

Pretty good, except it would be nice to have some configuration options. Mainly to be able to tell it to ignore certain folders. I've got a custom created spam folder and I don't really need to know that it has 338 unread messages in it.

Abolutely brillant ! One thing, though: I have set it to start at login. When MailUnread launch, it also open Mail.app. Could you add a preference for not doing that ? To not open mail at login. Thanks.

Right after installing, i encountered immediate problems. Frequent mail.app crashes, and the final straw today when the crash deleted all my accounts. This one scared me. Don't use it.

Waited till I got the opportunity to try it out at work before writing a comment on the new version. I have to say, it works very well for me both on my intel mac mini and my power mac g5. Works much better as a mail plugin than it did as a standalone app, in my opinion. All it needs is the ability to turn the text red when there's new mail ^_^

Hmm, there is a bug. It doesn't update automatically either when there is mail or when its read - it still shows 4 unred in my menu, but they were read hours ago :( Kind of looses its magic then :)

Great little app. I'd been using MSC (Mail Status Control), but that's still PPC. The only thing I used it for letting me know if I had new email in other mailboxes other than the inbox (which this app does wonderfully). One thing I'd like to see is maybe have different options for the menubar icon. For example, have just the number of emails that are new and have it change color if there are any (I'd prefer red). Heck, even a user-defined color would work. Regardless, This works perfectly for me. Great job! Exactly what I need for my new Intel Mac Mini ^^

Great! Needed an app like this, since MUSB never seem to be updated. I believe the icon in the menubar should be moved down one pixel.

This is the same product as MailUnreadStatusBar, except it doesn't have any of the features that MailUnreadStatusBar has. Unfortunately the programmer for MUSB doesn't make many updates to his products and it's not Universal. If you want to improve on your product you should check out the features, implemented and improve upon them. Like there is no option to turn off launching Mail if you launch MailUnreadStatusBar. Also the preferences are not that clear. Check out the features and make a better product. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14654
