|MailWatcher Mail Notification
|MailWatcher sits in your system tray and waits for you to receive messages. Because MailWatcher uses the same transports as Outlook and Exchange Client, no polling is necessary for you to be notified (polling is the communication between the server and the client), no additional network traffic is generated, and no CPU time is wasted so your inbox can be checked. You get the notification as soon as your mail arrives in your inbox.
MailWatcher can also run simultaneously with Exchange Client or the Outlook client. Actions in either program will be mirrored in the other. However, closing Outlook or Exchange Client will not affect MailWatcher's ability to notify you concerning incoming mail.
