ManilaMail for Mac1.5

Control mail from the menu bar.

What is ManilaMail for Mac

ManilaMail is an itty bitty "status bar" application that controls the most vital functions of Apple Mail in Mac OS X. This application is based off of the Gmail part of the Google Notifier and as such it is extremely light weight. There is no Growl integration or anything fancy like that. However, this little app is still very useful and it provides the following amazing features:

  • The ability to display the count of all unread messages (not only the messages in the inbox)
  • Menu items to show the inbox, create a new message, and check for new messages
  • The optional ability to automatically reopen Apple Mail if it is closed when ManilaMail is trying to do a count of unread messages
  • And that is about it

Note that this application will can reopen Mail if Mail is closed between unread message counts. Some may see this as a flaw but this is exactly what I wanted this application to do when I first designed it. The idea is to keep the user from accidentally closing Mail and therefore not receiving notifications of new mail. This behavior will be optional in a future version. This behavior is now optional as I have received feedback from people who did not like it.

What's new in ManilaMail

Version 1.5:
  • NOTE: This will be the last major release of ManilaMail for Mac OS X Tiger (see my blog for more information)
  • ManilaMail now automatically checks for updates during startup
  • Various bug fixes and UI tweaks

Nice little app, but don't you think it would be preferable the envelope icon than the "Mn(nn)"?

This issue has been fixed in the latest version. I have made this behavior optional because I actually do want Mail to reopen if I accidentally close it. Enjoy! Jeff

While the idea is a great one - I'm having issues with the app. If I close mail and leave manilamail running after about 3 seconds - manilamail opens my mail.app back up. I tested it on 2 computers and it does it on both. If I don't have manilamail running, mail.app works fine on close. Small issue, but it's enough to make me uninstall manilamail.
