Program Description

MailAlert is a convenient utility for Microsoft Windows 95/98/2000/XP and Windows NT 4.0 operating systems that notifies you when you have received electronic mail.  It works with most e-mail programs, and has the advantage of taking up very little memory when in use.

MailAlert displays an icon in the notification area of your Windows task bar. When you receive a message, the icon will flash to indicate that you have new mail.

Custom Notification
You can configure MailAlert to beep, play a sound or video file, or run any program or document when you receive new mail. You can also have a message box with the envelope information (author, subject, and date) of any new messages displayed.

We mean CUSTOM!
MailAlert can notify you differently based on the message author, subject, or specific text within the message itself. For example, you could play a special sound file when you get e-mail from your boss, or execute a program to beep your pager if MailAlert finds the word "Pager" in the subject or body of the message.

If you get reminders to perform activities, like filling out a time sheet, MailAlert can open your TimeSheet program for you when it receives the reminder.

You can even choose to set criteria and select no action for the notification, effectively telling MailAlert not to notify you of certain messages. (I use this for my Mailing Lists - I like the messages, but I don't need to know about them the minute they arrive, so I set MailAlert to ignore messages from the list server.)

The combinations, and the possibilites, are endless.
