I've developed Mboxcheck to have an applet which checks many mboxes and highlight some indicators.

Mboxcheck features:

  • Choose the indicator's types : text or pixmap.
  • Have one or several boxes for each indicator.
  • Turn on/off tooltips on the indicators.
  • Customize the tooltips: indicator's name, number of mails, boxes checked by the indicator.
  • Run a program on mail arrive, or when applet is clicked.


Some screenshots of the Mboxcheck applet :

4 indicators: 2 texts, 2 pixmaps.
