eMail Alert!, Intelli Innovations' e-mail notification and management software, has been updated to version 2.8, adding Mac OS 10.1 compatibility. Mac OS X 10.1 will, of course, be in stores this Saturday.
The new version also includes a new "Skip" button in the mail status window. When checking all accounts, you can press this button to stop checking the current account and jump to the next one. What's more, a variety of changes have been made to improve Carbon compatibility, including speed improvements and cosmetic enhancements.
eMail Alert! automatically scans your e-mail accounts on a regular basis. It can play sounds, display alert dialogs, launch AppleScripts, load URLs in your favorite browser, and more to get your attention when new messages arrive. Using the built-in message reader, you can read and reply to messages without leaving eMail Alert!, and delete the messages you don't want without having to download them. And you can do all this without having to launch your regular e-mail program.
eMail Alert! will run on any Power Mac running Mac OS 8.1 through 9.1, and Mac OS X. It requires 2 to 4MB of memory and CarbonLib 1.1 or later on "classic systems."
You can download eMail Alert! 2.8, a US$15 application, at the product Web site.
