DockStar is an add-on for Mail.app that I use to add extra “new mail” indicators to Mail.app’s Dock icon.
I found that if I used rules to organize incoming email into appropriate folders, I often overlooked the new email entirely. I guess I’m just so trained to focus on the InBox that even the numerical indicators on those other folders didn’t draw my attention. DockStar solved this problem for me as I was able to assign an addition “new mail” indicator on Mail Dock icon for up to 5 folders. Now the very icon that alerts me to new mail tells me where I need to look for it.
Among other fixes and enhancements, version 2.0.3 of DockStar fixes an issue where a sound notification was played more than once and adds compatibility with Mac OS X 10.5.
