Thanks for the heads-up! :) (How'd you even come to find out?)

Any idea how 1.9.23 differs from 1.9.22?

Well: "Note: Mail Satellite is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale." But if you want a functional version (and I've got zero idea if this is kosher), email me at eqjoneswholivesatverizondotnet and I"ll send you a copy of v 1.9.22 which I d/l'ed days before MS went belly up and which works, apparently with at cost.

Mail Mini's documentation says that its full functionality doesn't work with POP, that it only notifies you of unread new email, which is all I want.

Try d/l'ing a new copy of Mail Satellite. I d/l'ed it only about a week ago, and as I posted on its MacUpdate page, I can't find any way to pay for it. It's apparently been turned to freeware.

Bought a new MacBook Pro and have been trying to validate my licence code for two weeks with no luck. The dev's website appears to have disappeared, and email bounces back. Is this app now dead? I hope not, as it is indispensable.

Nice app from a very responsive developer! I use this all day to keep up with incoming mail and keep my inbox from filling up. It's the best of it's kind and the only app out there that really works!

Developer got rid of the nag screen upon request!

La dernière version de janvier 2018 fonctionne parfaitement; les développeurs sont à l'écoute. Je recommande.

Very useful menu bar app that displays the number of unread mail messages and lets you read them and trash them as well. But...recent updates add a nag screen that pops up almost every day asking you to review the app — with no way to turn it off or declare that you've already reviewed it. Increasingly annoying!

I've been a happy customer for years, but after I did a clean install of macOS High Sierra and downloaded a new copy of Mail Satellite, it won't work. When I open the app the process starts and is visible in the Activity Monitor, but the icon never appears on the menu bar.

Works well, worth the money as all others like MailBar don't work anymore and this is still being maintained. Developer answered my questions very quickly and even added a feature (Mark All Read, Hide All) and said he'll add another feature I requested (Show All incl. already-read). Occasionally can't display a message. Not quite as pretty an interface as MailBar but worth the money if you want this functionality.

Correspond to the expected role, accept many accounts. For 5 stars should have one counter for each accounts and not only one and permit to launch mail by simple clic on the M icon ! But it s a Free soft ! (Dockstar follows separately many accounts but it is too expensive)

I have been searching for months for an up-to-date app that would give me my unread email count from Apple Mail in the menu bar. The App Store has a few apps, but the developers haven't updated them for years, or they apps were pulled. Well, I just downloaded Mail Satellite, and you know what, it up-to-date, it works, and its unobtrusive. To the the developer of this app, thank you very much for the app, and please try to keep it up-to-date with OS X.

There are only a few such Apple Mail menu bar notifiers available, and all but this one have issues that make them either incompatible with the latest update to Mavericks, or they have other problems. Mail Satellite is the best menu bar notifier I have found yet for Apple Mail. But it still amazes me that after all these years, Apple fails to simply add this to OS X.

Pourquoi un délai aussi long entre l'arrivée d'un nouveau message et sa prise en compte dans la barre des menus (7 à 10 secondes)

This is officially an awesome utility. Mail sorely needs a menubar status icon, and Mail Menu Extension fills that need. The new version allows me to limit the display of new messages to inboxes only, which was the feature I needed. So far it's worked flawlessly, and at the price of free it's a fantastic deal. The only improvement I'd still like to see is an option for a blue status colour, not just red.

The (friendly) developer has already updated his software to v1.6 to work with Mavericks OS 10.9.2. Works like a charm!

I like it a lot. The only thing stopping me from using it is that it counts messages in all folders in my mail accounts, rather than just counting messages in the inboxes. I contacted the dev, who said that an option to limit the message count to inboxes is in the works.
