Windows 7: Gmail Notifier: looking for a replacement

Gmail Notifier: looking for a replacement

I'd like to find a replacement for the aging Gmail Notifier. Actually, it's always worked well for me but it just won't save the login/password and asks me again on every reboot. Pretty lame I think.

There have been threads like this before but they're pretty old, and I haven't really found the right thing while Googling yet.

What I'd like:
  • Runs in the systray.
  • Alerts on new mail with a sound and a small preview bubble.
  • Rightclick ability to preview new messages again; doubleclick to open Gmail in my browser.
  • No feature overload if possible...this is strictly for one single Gmail account.
  • Simple, self-contained app...no need for .NET or similar runtimes.
If anyone has suggestions, I'd be grateful.

I'm actually using Gdow right now. It would be perfect but won't let me re-read new email notifications so if I miss something, I have to open my browser every time.

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately this one would require me to keep FF running at all times, which is a no-no.

I don't have a gmail account but according to PopMan forums, users are using PopMan with it. It hasn't been updated in awhile. But I've had good luck with it over the years. I'm running on Windows 7 with no problems for checking my ISP email.

Did you ever try PopMan? I'm wondering because another person is looking for a periodic email notify app that works with GMail.

Pretty nifty program. The latest release is from 2010 is there an alternative ? Anyone have experience with this one ? The email notifiers for most of the browsers, have their flaws.
