I'd be surprised if this hasn't been bought up before, but I couldn't find it on the search.

I've just made the switch from Entourage to try Apple's Mail, after Entourage just slowed down to the point it could barley seem to handle my archive of old mail.

Does anyone know of way I can make the dock icon display the number of unread mails in all my folders not just the inboxes? It's very annoying if I have my computer muted or leave the room and don't know I've received email that's been filtered to a specific folder.

I've seen that DockStar app, but it seems a shame to have to pay for a service that you would think would be standard. I've also seen MailEnhancer, but it appears that this isn't very reliable under Tiger.
QUOTE Thanks
