Editors' Review

This simple, free tool alerts you when you've got mail in your Gmail account. The novice-friendly Gmail Notifier is easy to install and set up, requiring only your username and password. A small white envelope is placed in your system tray. It's easy to see when new e-mail arrives, and a pop-up window provides information on the sender, subject, and time the e-mail was sent. If you miss the alert the first time, a handy option, Tell Me Again, will show the pop-up again. Gmail Notifier won't take you directly to a specific e-mail, but a double-click quickly takes you to your in-box.

Although the program automatically scans for new items every couple of minutes, you can right-click the system tray icon to check your in-box at any time. One note to potential users: we found that the promised audio alerts can't be set up from within Gmail Notifier. Instead, the publisher directs you to your computer's Control Panel.

No help file comes with the program, but Gmail users won't have any problems setting up and using this simple tool. Despite the extra steps to set up the audio notifications, any Gmail user will appreciate the desktop notifications when new e-mail arrives.

"Have only had for a week but seems to work fine."

September 09, 2008  |  By mmhadick

 |  Version: Gmail Notifier 1.0

Pros

It was free. Text of message shows in notifier so I can easily see if it's something that needs my immediate attention.

Cons

Too early to tell. I think notification is timely but need to do more testing. Not sure but I don't think it works if I'm not logged in to Gmail.

"Works good only if you have Gmail."

January 19, 2008  |  By JoyceNgo

 |  Version: Gmail Notifier 1.0

Pros

I guess it's pretty obvious that this product only works if you have Google Mail. I love it since it has a very smooth sound when you received new mail, and has a good way to notify you (on the bottom, right hand corner of your screen instead of nagging on the center of the screen.) It is very easy to use, and you can also set what browser you want Gmail to open it. It's very small also.

Cons

There are times when it uses more than 10MB RAM, and I am not sure why, since it's a very simple product, however, I still like it.

"Very handy tool"

January 17, 2008  |  By Jesant13

 |  Version: Gmail Notifier 1.0

Pros

This handy program from Google monitors the inbox of your Gmail account and checks for new messages every two minutes. It only alerts you if you have new messages in your inbox, and not your spam folder, which is pretty handy.

"Works Well, But a bit slow.."

December 09, 2007  |  By Prashant Rayaprolu

 |  Version: Gmail Notifier 1.0

Pros

You Need not login to your email to check if you have an email anymore; you can see if u have an email and what/where it is from on your desktop and then go to your inbox if you want.

Cons

1) It is slow by a few minutes which doesn't match with todays speed, if you have a mail u wanna know it right away , right ?

2)Some mails are junk or not important, I wish I could make them 'unread' from the notifier itself. Well, I am not asking it to my dishes :-)

"Didn't work as well as I thought it would."

December 09, 2007  |  By Dennis Jobson

 |  Version: Gmail Notifier 1.0

Pros

I liked nothing about it

Cons

I really didn't like this software, everytime you reboot your computer you needed to sign it in again with its sign in box sitting in the middle of the screen.
