Gmail Notifier is a free little piece of software that lets you monitor one or more Gmail accounts. This application allows you to get notifications of new email messages, as well as view, delete and mark them as read.
By default, the program’s icon sits in the system tray. That icon’s popup menu has options for adding/removing an account, checking email, opening Gmail Notifier settings and doing some other actions typical for this kind of program.
- Checking accounts for new email automatically.
- Sound alert and a popup notification of new email.
- Ability to choose your own sound alert for new messages.
- Animated (flashing) tray icon.
- Ability to read email body.
- Counter of unread emails.
- Support for IMAP with SSL.
- Multiple account support.
To let Gmail Notifier function normally, you need to configure your Google account to allow access for less secure applications.
