OK so i got it to work on my work machine... here's the deal. It will only display unread messages in your top inbox folder of outlook express... hotmail and/or IMAP accounts will not work with this docklet (unless you can send them to your default inbox somehow)

anyone use an email program that doesn't treat IMAP and Hotmail accounts so differently from POP accounts and will let those emails go into your main inbox?

I'm sure I'm being thick, but I don't appear to be able to get it to check mail and display mail details.

does anybody know where i can set which mail client is run when i double-click on the stamp? it seems like it always runs outlook express although my default mail client is outlook 2003.

Right click/Configure meters.../Shortcut... Enter the application of your choice (e.g. outlook.exe).

the docklet does not show up in ObjectDock. Looks like you missed to include the .dll file in the .zip.

I have downloaded this and cannot get it to work at all. I have read other comments, but still can't get anywhere. i am new with the OD Plus. Can you help me to get this working? I use Outlook 2003 I do NOT understand what you mean by "loading mail_Static.ini". Please help. I am learning somuch about OD, but am still rather green! Thanks so much.

I'm with Just Jane! I can't figure how to get it to work - could anyone say it all again, slowly, for this stupid newbie?

For those of you who cant get it to work, make sure you install SysStats first... which you can find on this site.

I really like this docket... my only complaint is that it doesn't work with dock indicators that the program is open... but then again... its a sysstat plugin, so i guess that isn't possible.

Darn I wish this worked with Gmail because I am too lazy to go through the login to check my new emails. LOL

I'm trying to use this with Thunderbird, but am having problems. It keeps launching Thunderbird every time it checks for mail (every 10 minutes). And how do I get it to also check my Yahoo account (I'm using YahooPOPS)?

This checker doesn't use POP3, it uses MAPI. MAPI requires your email client to be running unless you are using MS Exchange.

I'm trying it with thunderbird and it has frozen OD b/c it constantly opens thunderbird. I literally cannot close thunderbird or quit OD?? Anyone know why I would get this result with Thunderbird?

I doubt anyone's still checking this (that can officially answer this, anyway) but is there any way to make the icon bounce in the dock like the any other app that needs attention?

I keep the dock minimized, so this would be great.

This app causes my Outlook (2003 SP1) to display a dialog saying something to the effect of "An application is attempting to access your address book, which could be the result of a virus". It then gives you the option of denying or giving access. Unfortunately, the most you can give access for is 10 minutes.

I've seen this before with other applications that use MAPI to syncronize with Outlook (such as my smart phone).

Then, of course, the system gets itself all confused and eventually crashes my laptop.

Anyone have any ideas how to bypass this "security feature" in Outlook for this awesome application?

It does connect to the exchange server, and can consequently tell you what was your unread mail situation when Outlook was last running, but for those of us who do not check their email through exchange, Outlook has to be already running in order for new mail to be received. At least, this is the way I understand it...

The way I do it now is this: I created a shortcut to outlook.exe on the desktop (here you must provide the full path), and selected for it to open in a minimized window (strangely enough, it appears that Microsoft did not provide a switch for that). I then dragged it to the startup folder, and life became very nice, although the startup time became much longer.

Judge, thank you for a wonderful app. I hope you submit a pattent for it, because if you don't, Microsoft might, and they will come to you asking for money.

This is a really nice docklet that worked first time for me.

only 2 slight problems - outlook2003 asks me every 10 minutes if it is ok for an 'application' to access it. I cant seem to set this by default to yes.

The other issue is that the same message tells me that aplication is tying to access email addresses stored in my contacts! Why would it be doing that?
