Very handy little app. :)

You may also try a Dashboard widget called Clockish. It displays the time almost the same way.
Something like "Almost five" or "Nine fifteenish" or "A quarter to seven"...

That crazy clock (as you wrote) is from a little application called MenuPics, that changes the look of the menu items.
You may find it here:
It's not Universal Binary. It's PowerPC only. And I didn't try it yet in my Intel-based iMac. So, I can't tell you if it works here.

Sorry, off topic... What is that crazy clock in the menu (in the screenshot)?

It's a good utility, but what I really need is something that could check the POP account without opening
There used to be a menubar item, called MailTicker, that did just that. But it seems to me that it doesn't work under the latest versions of Mac OS X. (And I suppose that its developement has been abandoned.)

Thought I'd add a positive comment :-)

When using my laptop, I always auto-hide my dock, so having a count in the menubar is perfect. Thanks.

I try to avoid using or even seeing the dock. I see the number of messages when I switch apps, but I prefer to have something in the menu bar. Thanks!

Right-click dock icon > Get New Mail
Red thing shows how many unread you have anyway.
Mail Unread Menu sucks.

Isn't that superfluos? I always check my mail-count in the dock?!

That's cool, but I don't think that I will be using it since I have my dock always showing so my count is always there.
