Guide Review - The Amazing Mail Checker 1.0 - Mail Checker

Mail checkers should check for new messages and announce it, nothing more. If this is what you think, The Amazing Mail Checker may be what you are looking for.

At a specified interval, it checks multiple accounts for new mail, announces it and offers to run your email program where you can work with the messages. Simple, elegant, and efficient.

Even if you adhere to that philosophy (which has a lot going for it), it would be desirable for the mail checker to be able to support more protocols than just POP, and have per-account settings for the checking interval and the announcement method.
