Communications - Yahoo! Checker

Description: This is a very simple dashboard widget that displays the status of your Yahoo! mail account.

As you can see it takes the form of a British postage stamp. The stamp will turn red when you have email waiting - the number will also increase to display the number of unread messages. Clicking on the stamp will open your Yahoo! inbox in your default web-browser.

If you have more than one Yahoo! account then just add more copies of the widget to your dashboard.

Simple and it works - I can't use Mail at work to check my yahoo mail, but this baby should save me having to waste company time logging in to check for new messages... Hang on a minute, does that mean I need to *work*?

I have the Gmail Widget which I believe is by the same author,it is IDENTICAL to the Yahoo widget. Consequently unless I remember EXACTLY where I have one Widget placed or the other I really won't know which is which. I think the author should have used a different color scheme for this widget than the Gmail widget to help us distinguish exactly which mail account has mail.

Good widget - however I came across a huge problem. I left this widget open in Dashboard for a couple hours while I was away from the computer - and when I came back my computer was at a crawl. I checked Activity Monitor and this widget was eating up ALL my RAM. Sure sign of a memory leak... I'm assuming.
