Manage your Inbox from the menu bar.

Overview

MailBar enables you to check your inbox and manage your emails directly from your Mac's status bar.

The light and discreet application is designed to run in the background and display the number of new emails next to its menu bar icon. Thanks to MailBar, you can monitor and manage up to four different mailboxes. From MailBar's status bar menu you can easily view all existing emails or filter the list by showing only the unread messages. On top of that, MailBar comes with a powerful built-in search form that enables you to narrow down the list of displayed emails.

What is more, MailBar offers you the option to mark a message as read, reload it and even open it and read it directly from within the app. MailBar also offers you the option to pin its status bar menu to your desktop as you read and go through your emails. By accessing the Preferences window, you can easily assign different colors to you mailboxes, enable or disable an inbox and select a different sound notification for each inbox. In addition, MailBar can be configured to automatically check for updates and launch at startup.

Not disagreeing with any of the positive reviews, but it REQUIRES Mail to be running, so you gain nothing. Mail will give you notifications, so all this does is repeat those in the menu bar. Find some freeware, this is NOT FREE!

Clicking on "Download" returns "Safari can't find the server...." This app is deceased and needs to be taken down. :(

In addition, the website, mailbarapp.com, appears to be gone.

Really liked the app but it looks as if the developer has abandoned it. Has not responded to any inquiries. It's a shame as it was perfect for my needs.

Seems to be dead. Does not work with Sierra. And the developer did not answer.

Will this be updated for MacOS Sierra? I am thinking of trying it out, but not sure if it works with Sierra...

My immediate impression is that it does what it promises and suits my needs perfectly with Notifications turned off.

I just downloaded MailBar to try out and it told me I had "0" days left in the trial! Now THAT"S a Catch-22!

Maybe you install MailBar before, it's very strange behaviour. Try download latest version.

Forgot to mention that I had run MB for only ONE day before this happened.

I've been testing it for few days now and like it. It is easy to set up, customizable enough for me, and a good way to monitor mail while doing something else. But of course there is always room for improvement. For instance, if left running for an extended period with either IMAP or Exchange account, MailBar will eventually go out of sync with Mail App. showing already trashed/moved/archived email as unread. The interface is nice but the tools don't have tooltips, so I'm forced to "find out" what the triangle icon is with my email. Some icons are simply poor choices, for example, the archive icon more resembles what we have come to understand as an inbox. It seem more reasonable to imitate the nav scheme of mail app, since this was created to be used with Mail App. Over all I think this is mostly successful and it adds needed features to Apple's Mail.

I remember that I had a now discontinued menubar item called “Notify” that was running separately from Mail. I was hoping to find a replacement in MailBar… but alas, if Mail has to run in the background this app doesn’t cut it for me.

Great little program, excellent for those who don't want Mail in their face all the time and don't want to act on it as soon as a notification comes along.

Just one little bug: whenever I perform an action on an email on Mailbar (i.e. archive or mark as read), the Mail.app window immediately pops up (it was already running, but I keep it with no windows open, as that is the whole point...). I just close the Mail.app window and carry on, but it's annoying. I'm running Yosemite on a Late 2013 Macbook Pro 15''.

This was a pleasant surprise: it has a carefully thought out design, elegant GUI, and provides a compelling reason to put another tool on the precious menubar real estate. The fact that it works in conjunction *with* mail.app and doesn't try to replace it should give critics a clue to its intent: this doesn't try do do it all, rather it focuses on getting to the most important mail. I hope they stick to their design goals and avoid turning this into more bloatware.
