Any summary for showing new emails in various accounts?

I've got various email addresses (but only one active FT account ) with hotmail, sbcglobal, etc. Rather than logging onto each account individually to see if there's any new email, is there any summary that can be displayed to show whether there are any new emails? ( and if there are new emails, then I would log into that account for a purpose)

Thank you in advance if anyone could help.

One option would be to have one primary account that you have all the others forward to.

Personally, I use Apple's Mail client to check multiple mailboxes via IMAP; it quite nicely interleaves the messages in the primary Inbox view. If you have a Mac and your accounts all support IMAP/POP (preferably IMAP) that's another option.

Sounds good, but then again, I've been known to fly coach on mileage-run transpacs too. How do I setup that squirrelmail\etc.? (don't have a Mac)

If you have a Blackberry, you can have it pull everything as well.

I have a Win 95 era little program called "MailCall" that will check an unlimited number of pop3 accounts and notify you when there is new mail.

If you want it, email me and I'll email it to you. It won't do webmail, of course.

Exactly. I have several domain emails plus my Earthlink account and set them all up in Eudora. So when I check mail, all the new messages are downloaded. Doesn't work for Web addresses though.

There are various pieces of software and online services that'll emulate POP/IMAP for webmail accounts. I'm not familiar with them, so search around... Maintaining that for several accounts might be more of a pain than you really want though.

I have done this as well. I've forwarded all my Comcast webmail to my Yahoo account. If I need to send an e-mail from the Comcast account, I still need to log into that account, but it's infrequent.

If anyone knows of a Windows version of this type of software, please post or PM me. You would be my hero.

MS Outlook can do it too, I believe. I use Outlook 2003 to check POP3, Hotmail and Gmail. I believe you can check IMAP mail as well. Just go to Tools - Email Accounts - Add Account.
