Get Notified About Changes In Public Folders From Tray

Have you ever missed an important post or a message? Do always want to be in the know what`s going on in Exchange public folders, as well as your own personal mail folders? An add-on called Public Folder Watcher will help do all above mentioned.

L`VIV, Ukraine - May 25, 2010 - ArtfulBits Inc. today announces the immediate availability of Public Folder Watcher 2.0.*, a major new release of the add-on for Microsoft Outlook that enables its users - managers, analysts, tech support specialists - to get notified about changes in Exchange public folders and get a status of unread email messages right from the system tray. Additionally, the add-on will track other email folders and do it more conveniently than the native Outlook feature, especially when there are many folders and rules used.

Once Public Folder Watcher is installed, it adds a small notification window next to the system tray and every 20 minutes (or some other custom interval) it`ll pop up automatically to show a list of all folders containing unread mail in Inbox and Public folders. A click on the folder item you are interested in will open up an Outlook window. The add-on integrates into Microsoft Outlook seamlessly and does not slow down its performance thanks to its multi-threaded technology. You can easily set things up to your own preferences through the menu in Outlook. For example, you can configure the checking intervals for folders.
