YMail Notifier


A composite screenshot of the various visual elements.

Adds a little status-bar icon that notifies you when you get new Yahoo! Mail. Click on the icon to change the frequency of checking and other settings. When new mail arrives you can choose to be notified with sound, a sliding alert (Windows only), or by running an external application. When there is no mail, the status-bar icon dims itself.
