MailWidget for Mac alerts users with a customizable sound notification whenever they receive new mail messages, and it works for multiple accounts. Despite a minor setup issue, this handy widget worked well.

We downloaded the widget and installed it easily, a matter of double-clicking the icon and agreeing to install it into our Dashboard. MailWidget for Mac operates like any other widget but it lacks any user guidance. We did find the link to the user manual on the developer's Web site. When we activated the widget we were able to press and hold the Shift key to adjust its size. By pressing the "i" in the lower right corner of the widget we were able to enter the settings for our mail accounts and adjust the widget. When we clicked on the "Select Accounts" option we were shown available mail accounts. We choose our Hotmail account and were asked to verify it with a password but this didn't work and the light next to it turned red. Same went for our Gmail account. However, after restarting our Mac and trying again, the verification did work for both accounts and the light next to each account turned green. Additional settings for this widget included interval settings, update settings, Growl support, and audio feedback settings, allowing us to set the volume and the audio played as a notification. When we moved the slider to adjust the volume we were able to hear a female voice announcing e-mail arrival. By dragging the file from iTunes we were also able to replace this voice with our own audio. To test the widget, we shut Mail down and sent ourselves a couple of test messages from both our e-mail accounts. After the assigned interval, we heard the notification and the red badge displayed the number of new e-mails on the widget.

MailWidget for Mac is a great addition for users who have multiple e-mail accounts they need to monitor.

    "Slows down"

    December 31, 2012   |   By Harborth

    Version: MailWidget 3.59

    Pros

    The older versions were great.

    Cons

    The 3.56 and 3.57 didn't work at all. This version works, but slows down all other processes, especially Mail. Unfortunately, a little too much time with the beach ball.
