Windows 7: Do Google provide email alerts for GMail ?

Do Google provide email alerts for GMail ?

I've got an ordinary GMail account, but suddenly having big problems today receiving any email notifications at all via Pop Peeper, due most likely I think to GMail overnight updating their security screenings. I've used PP for years and they're very good but sometimes it becomes a nightmare as GMail then treats PP as a potential security threat making it almost impossible to access your account without a barrage of questions and verifications, finally getting stuck in an endless loop answering the same questions over and over again.

Anyone know if GMail offer this same notification service as well so as to avoid all this hassle once and for all... ?

Not 100% sure as i dont use gmail as my primary email account. But; there might be a way to get it to notify. Have you tried setting it up with a mail program such as outlook or another one of the freebie mail programs like the one from mozilla? There might be a way to do it if you look in the settings for your mail account on the gmail site(not through any mail program).

I used to use g-notifier and or gtalk,
This is all I can find on it on a quick search,
I'm sure it's still in the plug-ins store/ app store or what ever it's called from the google toolbar if you have that installed ?
