Email inbox widget

Posted on 2010-05-04 17:04 UTC by Xander H. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop, Internet & Networking.

As the title says, I think having a widget for your email inbox (at least unread emails, but this could be a setting) in a Blackberry-like fashion would be very helpful.

It could be a widget in the form of the calendar widget, maybe each item being clickable and opening the corresponding email inbox or maybe the email item itself.

Features I would like to see:

  • It'd probably be useful to have some sort of sorting option, allowing you to sort the emails in the widget by either date or unread state (or whatever you fancy).
  • A resize option would probably be desirable, I for one would dedicate an entire desktop to this but I'm sure not everyone would.
  • Setting deciding how many emails to show would probably be nice.
  • Maybe a setting to show the first line of the email like the actual client, though this isn't top priority.
  • Some indicator to show what email account it belongs to, but again, not extremely high priority (you'd see this when you'd open the mail anyway).
