WebMail Notifier for Firefox is a basic add-on that checks e-mail for a variety of different types of e-mail accounts. There's nothing particularly exciting about it, but it works just fine if you need a simple e-mail alert that's well integrated with Firefox.

The program appears as a small envelope icon within Firefox's status bar. It's quite inconspicuous, which is nice. When there are unread messages the envelope turns from gray to yellow, and the number of messages appears to the right. An optional pop-up window shows a brief preview of newly received messages. We liked that the add-on has some options for customization; users can select their own alert sounds and can also choose how frequently they want the notifier to check for new messages. WebMail Notifier also supports a variety of different e-mail providers, including Gmail, Hotmail, and Yahoo, and users can configure the application to check multiple e-mail accounts. Users can also create scripts to check for e-mail in accounts that aren't supported, although if you don't already know how to do this, don't expect any guidance. The add-on doesn't do any fancy tricks, but it's an excellent choice if you're looking for a basic, easy-to-use utility that will let you know when you have new mail.

WebMail Notifier for Firefox is free. Like most browser add-ons it doesn't come with a Help file, but it's pretty easy to figure out. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Email checker, as browser add-on... works"

September 16, 2011  |  By rdunn

 |  Version: WebMail Notifier for Firefox 2.7.10

Pros

It's relatively simple to set up for accounts with various email providers.
It's constantly updated to keep up with changing webmail provider logins... which does take some effort.

Cons

My major fault of it, is that there is no 'stand-alone' version... or for Internet Explorer. (There are versions for Firefox, Thunderbird, Chrome and Opera.)

Summary

Works well to both check for emails (displaying number), and to pop open a tab (or email client program) into your account.
