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:
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.
