Also it cannot connect to local servers using just an IP.
Comment #7 Friday, February 16, 2007 7:42 PM
Yes, mine does not seem to report emails correctly either. If I open the email client, it then updates and reports incoming emails. Otherwise, it never updates. I look forward to the updated version.

Could you make it localizable? There seem to be only two localizable strings, for german they would be
x New -> x neue
Messages -> Mails

Looks very nice.
Any plans of adding support of multiple account? Merge the mail count for both of them?

This is a great idea and would be really useful but for some reason does not report emails correctly , if at all, and does not seem to do anything. It would be nice to have an adjustable poll timer to verify if it is in fact polling but I'm not sure how to check that one way or the other with this version. Also, being able to poll more that one account would be very useful too. I hope there are future upgrade plans for this sidebar gadget as it really is a good concept and no one else, that I can find has developed one, except for GMail.

Great work! How about multiple account/IMAP support/animation when checking in your next release?

Hesitated to download this at first due to issues people listed. Glad I finally did though, it's working as advertised and looks great. I can't believe it was so hard to find a simple POP3 mail notifier for the sidebar, I'd think that would be a hot one. Thanks Tom

doesn't work here, since it removes the '0' (at the beginning of my username) automatically in the user name field.

Nice Work!

Sorry for my english! I'm from Germany!
Can you localize it to German?
New = Neue
massages = Nachrichten!

And two more Options are nice:
a Option to check the account more often! 5min, 10min, ...
and a Option for playing my own Sound when i got new mail!

I'm having a problem with this gadget, every time I set the user/pass/server and click ok, the gadget crash, any idea of what could be causing this?

You can't.

QUOTE: do i need vista sidebar for this gadget to work?

Erm... given that the title of this section is 'Sidebar Gadgets - Gadgets for the Windows Vista sidebar' - what do you think they'd be for - and what you'll need to have installed to use them!?

Very nice/handy Tom Thanks
