E-mail slowing you down? Try Mail Alert.

Mail Alert is an award-winning e-mail alert add-in for Microsoft Outlook 2000 / XP / 2003 / 2007 / 20101.

Reclaim Your Productivity

Mail Alert was designed with your productivity in mind. That's why we've made it easier for you to simply get your work done without the hassle of switching to Microsoft Outlook every time you receive new mail.

Preview

Desktop Alert Window

When new e-mail arrives, Mail Alert will display a non-intrusive desktop alert containing essential information from the e-mail received. Now you can avoid the constant shuffle between work and e-mail, thus boosting your productivity. Mail Alert can also alert you to an incoming e-mail by playing a sound, running a program or displaying an icon in the notification area (system tray).

Want to reply to the incoming e-mail? No need to stop working and switch to Microsoft Outlook; Mail Alert provides the most common actions directly from the desktop alert, such as reply [to all], forward, flag for follow up, mark as read and delete.

Running a presentation or just need e-mail silence? Try the Mail Alert mute feature. It allows you to quickly mute all alerts at the click of a button.

Take Back Control

With Mail Alert, you control how and when alerts are performed.

You can choose how many alerts are shown at once, and how long before each alert is dismissed. You also have the option of selecting desktop alerts for all incoming e-mail or only for those delivered to folders you specify, unlike in Microsoft Outlook which only allows desktop alerts for your Inbox. Mail Alert also works in conjunction with Microsoft Outlook rules, giving you, the user, maximum flexibility.

New in 2.5: Tired of having alerts hang around for e-mails you've already read or deleted? Try the intelligent automatic dismissal feature. It allows Mail Alert to automatically dismiss alerts when e-mails are read or deleted.

Personalize

Want desktop alerts that match your Windows theme?

Mail Alert fits your personal style and needs by giving you full control over the color, font, glass effect and transparency of the alert windows.
