    Quick question..

    Does anyone know of any software which exists that sits in the menu bar (top right) and alerts you when you have new mail.. rather than leaving mail.app open all the time? Would be a handy app to have.. just wondering if it exists

    Thanks!

    from what i've seen, mail.app will always need to be open if you want to receive updates as to having new mail.

    Just hide mail.app. Cmd+H
    When you receive new email, it'll beep and display the number of email.
