If you are one of those who used Gmail Notifier for your email desktop notifications, then you must check out these alternatives since that is the only way you will be able to retain a similar service which G-Notifier used to serve. In fact, I was very amazed when I woke up some days back, turned on my computer, signed on my Gmail-Notifier and saw no new messages, and which was a lie.
I only got to know the news about my favorite desktop email notification application having been retired after I attempted to search for some reasons on the net as to why I wasn’t getting email notifications through the same application yet logging in my email using a browser would show me how I had many unread messages.
Getting to know that my Gmail Notification application was no longer supported, I was prompted to make some searches while looking for some similar applications which could help me get notified of all new email messages on my computer desktop other than having to first log in using a browser and basing on the tests I have made so far, I discovered some of what I can refer to as the best alternatives and which I am sharing with you so as to make use of them and below we go.
PopMan – This is a free email notifier application which works just like how Gmail Notifier used to work although for it has many advanced features and does require you to configure it before using it. Some of its features include the ability to receive and read emails directly from the application desktop tab, the option for you to choose which email client to use for your outgoing messages or replies for example Outlook, Opera, Firefox and others, you can configure and set up email check intervals and limits, set up a notification tone whenever there is an email, decide whether you want the application to display the number of messages still unread and many others.You can check out the entire PopMan configuration tutorial here.
POP Peeper – This is a bit similar to Pop-Man above although for it is a bit more simple to configure when it comes to the overall settings. The application runs on your Windows task bar and does do the work of notifying you on every new incoming email basing on the email accounts you set up. What you need to do is to add your account email address and password so as to get started.
Gmail Notifier Pro – This is a good one and a free software which can be downloaded from the Google Chrome application portal. It helps you get your email notifications from Gmail accounts, Applications and others. It is suitable for those running all Windows versions but with Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installed on your computer.
