Wouldn't it be great if you could quickly check your new messages in Apple Mail without having to open it all the time? MiniMail does just that.
This nifty Apple Mail plugin shows your new email messages in a hovering window on your desktop. The interface includes a "check mail" and a "new message" buttons.
Other tasks like replying, forwarding or marking as junk are also immediately accessible from the button on the right of the interface. You can even assign hotkeys to MiniMail.
The control you have over resizing the message window is excellent. You can have MiniMail displaying in glorious widescreen or simply displaying one line of a message so it can be very discreet too.
The main drawback of MiniMail however is that it shows you your new messages but doesn't let you cycle through old ones.
MiniMail is an excellent Apple Mail plugin that will significantly enhance the control you have over Apple's Mail client.
- Adds preliminary compatibility with Mail 4.4 (OS X 10.6.5 update).
