Handy E-Mail Utility Updated

Navdeep Bains has updated his handy e-mail utility, Mail Beacon, to version 1.3. Mail Beacon allows users to be notified when they have messages waiting, serve as a filter to prevent the download of unwanted mail, and also provide e-mail chat capabilities. According to Mr. Bains:

Mail Beacon alerts you when new messages arrive and/or when messages are deleted(by a thrid party). It can also filter email without downloading it, and acts as an online email client. Mail Beacon supports both POP3 & IMAP4.

Changes in 1.3:

  • More bug fixes.
  • In some rare situations, Mail Beacon would say it was idle when it wasnit, or would continue to check when you told it to cancel, this bug has been fixed.
  • Added a "Show Unseen" menuitem(in the Tools menu), this command displays the number of unseen messages for all of your accounts.
  • Added Reminders.

Mail Beacon is available for US$10. You can find more information at Mr. Bainsi Web site.
