thanks jaidy , i have messenger and i use trillian so it signs me into messenger and i get notifications via trillian, the issue is i want another notifier to work for my partners yahoo account, i did try having both accounts in trillian but yahoo doesn't like it if you are signed into two accounts from the same pc. i dont want to use the notifier with my browser i want a widget on the desktop that displays a notification whenever there is new mail, not just when i open my browser,
thanks for the effort though, i should have been more specific, sorry
i found this old thread
where i give similar advice about messenger, so the reason i wish to find a new one is that i want to be able to open the inboxes at the click of a button without having to sign in and out of either one. the yahoo widget wont open the inbox unless there actually is a new mail.
