“Outlook mail counter” to place your outlook count on your desktop. With the recent beta of Outlook 2003 it looks like this utility isn’t going to be that useful since the new outlook does this on it’s own. One of the top requests the developer received was to allow people who didn’t use outlook but a web mail service like Yahoo or MSN to check their mail in a similar way. Now developed Pop mail counter for windows XP. This program talks directly to a POP mail server, counts your mail and places this information on your Windows XP welcome screen. Now currently running a public Beta.
