Lightweight application that provides Yahoo! Mail users with a simple means of letting them know when they receive new messages by adding a pop-up window on the desktop

editor's review




Yahoo! Mail Checker is a tool addressed to Yahoo users, specifically created for those preferring the mail service, offering a very simple way to check an account for new messages automatically.

Hassle-free setup, required credentials and a few dedicated tools

After a quick and seamless installation process comes to an end, the program prompts users to input the Yahoo ID and the password, giving them the option to also set up the interval for automatically checking the inbox.

There are dedicated tools to minimize the app to System Tray, start it with Windows and save the provided password.

View number of mails received on the desktop

Once you are done with the configuration task, Yahoo! Mail Checker places a small widget-like window on the desktop that informs you whenever a new message lands in your inbox.

As you can find out by reading its name, Yahoo! Mail Checker is especially supposed to check the email and nothing more, so you should not be surprised when the utility does not show the content of a new message.

Performance and conclusion

Supposed to run all the time, the application is far from being a resource hog, which means it runs on low resources and does not hamper system performance at all. However, we have noticed some compatibility issues on Windows 7, as the program refused to log in with the provided user name and password every once in a while.

Taking all of this into consideration, Yahoo! Mail Checker is a pretty handy tool for most Yahoo Mail users that does exactly the same thing as Yahoo Messenger, yet without the need for the popular instant messaging client.
