Default unread email widget?

Anyone know a free widget that will display a count of unread emails 1x1? The Evo's stock email widget did this and I got used to seeing how many emails I had without taking up a lot of real estate on the home screen. Preferably one that will work with exchange email, too.

You can do that for gmail thru launcher pro but apparently the android SDK doesn't allow developers to create widgets that can access that info for non-gmail accounts. HTC apparently has created their own email app which is why their widgets work.

Here's another thread about this issue on another device's forum:
