Great Widget! Very Useful!

Great! Except that you can make it look like your email address is anything. Maybe a safety issue?

Sssshhhh!!!!!!! don't tell anyone!!!!

But seriously; we have a disclaimer in the widget; it utilizes PHP's mail() function, so there's nothing we can do about it. PLEASE don't abuse it.

where do you put in the pass word for your email account?? on the back?

No, you don't need one! That's the beauty of miniMail! Enter your email address and go!

Use a custom image for the "Send" button.
Reason: you should not use Aqua controls on the front of a widget. See here:

Correct url:

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleApplications/Conceptual/Dashboard_Tutorial/Design/chapter_4_section_2.html

look just above the blue Voices widget.

We now have a non Aqua send button.

To anyone who is amazed or confused by the fact that you don't need to enter an email address, or that you can spoof an email address with this tool, or that that somehow makes this widget a security issue, I have this to say:

You're out of your element.

Beware for this widget and avoid it at all costs! I gave it a go and promptly found that my email address is now being used to send bulk spam emails.
