Hate having to login to check to see if you have gmail? If you use a Windows PC, you no longer have to worry.

Official Gmail Notifier [toolbar.google.com]

The Gmail Notifier is a downloadable Windows application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages, and shows you their subjects, senders and snippets, all without your having to open a web browser.

The Notifier is in beta. Before you download it, we encourage you to review the system requirements and privacy information.

Awesome, another great reason to dump hotmail/yahoo.

Excellent beginning on this tool.

Now, if only Google would recogonize the need for multiple email addresses and make these tools for mulitple accounts.

i have the Gmail Notifier extension for FF!

Which clearly violates the Gmail TOS, and Google is quietly changing its login procedures and message display in ways which will break it.

It's not a particularly good idea using this extension to check an account which has any importance, which is why the official Gmail notifier is important (but I want one for Linux too!)

This is a great little program! Works great, AND give a good indication when Gmail is having problems because it will give login errors.

I just noticed this morning that the Gmail Notifier updated its registry settings and autostart option. It did all of this automatically without notifying me (pun intended). If I didn't have a registry monitor I would never have noticed this.

This happened to me about 5 minutes ago. Since I've had this for a couple weeks, couldn't belive that it was updating itself without letting me approve/disapprove what it was doing.

I reread the agreement, and it says what most of them do, they accept no liability to what it'll do and how it's going to work.

Once I saw that I can't control what its going to download, adn that'll change my startup programs without letting me know anything - its now one less piece of software on my computer.

So that would be why it stopped working for me this morning - gives me an error "Cannot read your messages (bad data, 1)". :(

It looks like the notifier got a makeover. It has new images and popups when I get a message.
