Mail widget is a widget for Mail.
It polls a specified POP, IMAP or .Mac account every time the Dashboard is loaded (even when Mail is not running) and displays the number of unread messages. It also features the option to “speak” the number of new emails.
Version 1.4 is completely rebuilt. It now offers support for SSL connections. The developer claims that it also now much faster. And he is right.
Mail Widget is freeware. You can get it from the developer’s site .
