Publisher's Description

Scott's Gmail Alert is a notification program for Gmail, Google Apps, Google Calendar, and RSS feeds which quietly sits on your taskbar until it discovers new messages in up to five separate accounts. Send quick emails without logging in to Gmail directly, including replying to received messages and website email links. Set eye catching colors to alert messages to help differentiate important emails from others, using either the default or Windows Aero Glass theme.

Took a look at this after Scott1209 spammed Gmail Notifier Plus' reviews with a link to this. Sure, Scott's Notifier works. But it's ugly and the interface is circa 2000. Tray icons are a relic of the past and offer poor usability and notification options. And then theres all the BLOAT. This thing is insanely bloated if all you want to do is check your email. I don't need Calendar, News, Weather, RSS - I just want it to check my multiple Gmail accounts. Additionally, it's not open source, and that's a huge negative. Taking points off for a pretty outdated and broken website (the screenshots page doesn't contain anything). If you're thinking of ditching Gmail Notifier Plus for this, don't waste your time.

WOW this GMail Notifier is beyond AWESOME, for free, it's hands down the most feature rich I've tried and I've tried them all. Try this one you will never need another GMail notifier program! It does everything and then some!

I've been testing the beta's leading up to V5 as well, this V5 release is AWESOME with so many changes. This is NOT just a GMAIL notifier, it has a Google calendar interface, weather interface, RSS interface, Google talk interface & it's so very customizable with sounds, colors, ease of use. If you find a better tool, please let me know what it is! This one has everything you could want & more. If you want it to do something else, just ask Scott in an EMAIL, he is a very creative programmer and listens to the user, he'll include it if it's possible to code it!

Great little application. I started to use this instead of the firefox add-on.
Easy to setup and use. Well worth giving it a try.

Scotts GMail Alert 4.2 is the best notifier available, It has a support forum http://gmailalert.proboards.com/index.cgi which will help you resolve any problems you might have or answer any questions you might have, IF you need something extra request it on the forum, Scott will include in in the very next release if it's possible!!

Just gets better with each release, Scott is adding new & improved features with each release and it's released often and updated even more often!

This gets my vote for BEST GMail notifier of the year, I've tried all of the popular ones, this has more customizations, more options, I can view RSS feeds, it works with my Google Calendar, I could not ask for a better piece of software for 100% FREE

V4 Scott's Gmail Alert is a complete rewrite and Scott has incorporated everything from the previous releases and added so many new features to make this release so much better.
There has to be 10 or more GMail notifiers out there this one has more features, more options, interfaces with Google Calendar and RSS feeds.
If this doesn't do something with Gmail, send Scott an Email, he'll fix it, I've sent him numerous requests and he has taken them all seriously & responded

This version has many GREAT improvements, anyone looking for the VERY BEST GMail/Google Calendar notifier should be looking at this one, it would be 10 stars if that rating was available for me!!!!

I have used V.3.51 & 3.60 and I have mixed emotions. As an application it does what it says. To some extend I have to say that I am very impressed.

Unfortunately, when I install the app (Win XP SP3, ATI RAdeon 4850 with Catalyst 9.9) full screen overlay mixer video rendering does not work (please reboot the computer to check it). DirectDraw works, similar to Haali, etc. Tested with the KMPlayer, AverTV DVB-T software, etc.
