2.0.4
25 February 2011

Resize your Mail.app window to conserve screen space.

Overview

MiniMail is a plugin for Apple's Mail application. Just as the mini-player in iTunes does for music; MiniMail puts information about your inbox at your fingertips. You can easily see messages as they arrive, and quickly action them. You can resize the window any way you like to conserve as much screen real-estate as possible.

Features:

Any Size You Like:

The MiniMail window is exactly like the iTunes mini-controller everyone is used to. Resize it to suit your screen size, or available desktop space. From 1 to many lines displayed in the message viewer, MiniMail always has you covered.

Message Preview:

Preview the current message right from MiniMail: just press 'Space' or click on the preview button to see a full message preview.

Clickity Click:

Check for mail, compose or action unread messages; all at the click of a button. Easily reply-to, forward, redirect or bounce an incoming message, catch junk or flag those important e-mails. Day-to-day blocking and tackling is easy with MiniMail.

Clever Updating:

MiniMail is smart enough to alert you when an update is available, so you're always ahead of the game.

Keyboard Wizzardry:

MiniMail allows you to quickly cycle through your inbox with your keyboard or the on-screen arrows. We've also added support for the Mail.app keyboard shortcuts you know and love, so you'll never be at a loss.

Custom Mailboxes:

Mailboxes are an excellent way of keeping on top of large amounts of e-mail. We've added custom mailbox preferences to MiniMail so you'll only be notified of those messages that land in mailboxes you deem important.

Credits:

MiniMail is based on an original idea by Derek Powazek (http//powazek.com)

Struggled with the upgrade to Snow Leopard and MiniMail like most. With the last couple of iterations of the application, works well, retains position on screen, and has now become a must=have application, even on my 15" UMBP. Excellent application. Excellent technical response/help from the developer.

I used the software some months, i liked the feature, then after update to Snow Leopard i had to uninstall , bcs of incompatibility. Yesterday i downloaded from their Software site, THERE is no hint about upgrade/license, after all it turned out, one has to buy complete new license. Well so wasted my time, bcs i was convinced it would be free for me, bcs of no mention. I do not complain about upgrade fees ! But it should be mentioned Anyway i like the free herald even more now

The upgrade to MiniMail is $4.95 for all MiniMail 1.X users. I had sent out coupons and upgrade notices to all the registered 1.X users and I had included notice of the upgrade price in press releases I sent to prMac and various other sites. If you wish to upgrade at $4.95 ($8 off the new $12.95 price) contact me from our website.

What's with the windows changing size on what seems a compleely arbitrary basis ?! ..er... is the "window-growing" automatically just by touching it a feature ? If so.. please make it go away lol. I have yet to understand if this utility is useful or a hindrance... the way it grows automatically even though my inbox is empty (thus not to say.. accommodate a message's view..) is truly annnoying... plus aren't messages supposed to be viewed full by clicking the little eye/quicklook icon anyway ? So what is the automatic-growth about really ? Feels like a major bug... prove to me this is a feature.. and explain how it is not a real pain lol I gave up using Copypaste (different product I know.. am just comparing this off window-growing behavior) for this same reason, the little desktop icons grow and grow... just by touching/moving them.

Haven't had serious issues with MiniMail so far, apart from an occasional with the full pop-up window suddendly shrinking to a hardly-enlargeable microwindow. All in all, it's hot software, and I deeply love it. Snow Leopard support is in progress according to the forums: c'mon guys!

Interesting app, but doesn't Spaces in Leopard somewhat negate the need for it? What does it matter what size your Mail app is when you can have it take up an entire window? I have a Space just for Mail, so nothing shares space with it.

I understand your point about Spaces, but I can't seem to get Spaces to work for me. I don't know if it's because I like all of my applications at hand or if it's because I haven't really been able to figure out how Spaces benefits me. Probably the latter, and that's probably due to some deficiency in my character:-) Meanwhile, MiniMail and I co-exist nicely for whatever reason. And I may be too set in my ways to change.

Do you have a three-button mouse? If so, assign, let's say, the middle button to Spaces, so you can move very quickly from space to space. It is actually really efficient and intuitive, and prevents desktop clutter because you can see everything you have open at a glance (plus, you can create as many spaces as you need, and assign applications to a particular space). In fact, all you need to be able to do is to change desktops from one space to another (hopefully such functionality will turn up in 10.5.2) for Spaces to move up from 'Cool' to 'Excellent'!

Thanks for the heads up, Simon. I think that I miscommunicated though. When I said 'desktops' I meant desktops (Mac) or wallpaper (PC). On my MacMini at work I have Tiger and use You Control! Desktops so I can not only have a different desktop based upon whatever purpose I have in mind, but different backgrounds as well. As far as I am aware, Spaces does not yet have that level of functionality (though, trust me, I want to be so, so wrong;) As much as I dig Spaces, would like some way to visually differentiate each desktop.

Review Author: JRPar Excellent application, and build 67 is available now. Much prefer it to the apps that bring up floating, semi-transparent windows onto your screen. MiniMail is unobtrusive, but available at a glance when needed. Developer is responsive, which is always a good thing. Two features that I would like to see considered: 1) Capability in the actions menu to select which rule to apply to new messages that don't already meet rule parameters (sometimes I can't remember which rules I have active), i.e. if I want to tag it, etc. 2) An indication of some type to let me know if I had multiple new emails by the same sender, same subject, perhaps designated by color. That way I would know to scroll through to find related emails--helpful when working on a project or issue that's changing quickly throughout the day. As I said, though, MiniMail is a great idea, well executed by OliveToast Software. (1/12/2008, Version: 1.1 build66)

@JPAR Interesting suggestions; hopefully John will consider your ideas. Another great feature would be a support of MailTags in the preview window of MiniMail (as far as I know a Leopard version of MailTags is on the way). However, as you said, MiniMail is a outstanding Mail plug-in!
