Does anyone know if there is a way or a plugin or a 3rd party downloadable thingy that will show a perpetual status when I have new mail? I tried GrowlMail but it isn't really what I want. I know the Mail icon shows the number of new messages, but I hide my dock, so it serves no purpose for me. I'd like a small mail icon to show up next to my clock, wifi, battery, etc notification area.
Thanks but bleh, no pop3 for me, horrible protocol. I just would rather there be some Mail.app plugin or feature that says "Display new mail icon on menu bar". Other apps have this like Growl, Adium, etc.
