Mail Badger

Version: 0.4 || Release Date: 2009-01-13 || License: Freeware Developer: Tony Allevato | App Owner: mcg

Mail Badger is a plug-in for Apple's that enhances the application's dock icon by allowing users to set up multiple "badges" that display message counts from different mailboxes or counts of messages that satisfy a wide range of conditions.

A brief summary of the features included in Mail Badger:

* Supports any number of badges, limited only by available memory and performance
* Complete control and freedom over the position and size of badges on the dock icon
* Badges can be colorized and made partially transparent
* Users can set their own custom images to be used on badges (Mail Badger comes with four built-in shapes)
* Configurable fonts and other text attributes for the number displayed on each badge
* Message counts displayed on each badge can be computed from the number of messages in a mailbox (unread, read, or total), from the number of messages that satisfy a set of conditions, or by the result of running AppleScript

This is a great program!

The site is down right now but I found the download elsewhere:

I can not get it to instal on a PBG4 10.5.5 :-(

Still works fine for me on 10.5.5 (Mail 3.5).
Try reinstalling the bundle.

doesn't appear to work in Mail 3.5 (on 10.5.5), no preference pane appears after installing.


v0.3 is out, Leopard is now supported !

Great program, but it needs a leopard compatible version :(

emailed the developer about it, but so far no response..

This is an excellent bundle, but has stopped working for me. I don't know whether it was a Mail update or something else, but now Mail freezes when trying to open.

Back to Dockstar...

I can't seem to contact the author of this. His email address keeps rejecting any emails I send. Anyone else having this issue?

Thank you so much, works great!

Very very very good program, long time waiting for it, thnxs very much!!
