Email me when discounted: 
Notify is a new Gmail notifier for OS X which supports multiple accounts. Each account has individual notification options, and you can easily check what's in each account via the tabbed interface.

Features:

  • More than just Gmail: The biggest feature request we got for Notify 1.0 was Google Apps support, so here it is. Not only does Notify 2 support Gmail & Google Apps, it also has built in support for Rackspace Email, and MobileMe. Notify Pro even supports generic IMAP accounts.
  • Compose & Reply: Ever wanted to send a quick message or reply to something without opening your browser? No problem. In Notify more...

What's New

Version 2.1.6:
  • Fix bug where messages may not be displayed in list.
  • Fixed bug where reply button may sometimes not work.
  • Misc. bug and crash fixes.
  • Change how Notify searches for Trash back to previous method.
  • Change how Notify searches for inbox by full folder path.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later

I just found Mail Call on the App Store. You can also find it here:

If you like Notify, this is the closest you're going to get to replacing it. It works pretty well, and the developer replied to an inquiry I had very promptly.

LOVE Notify.
Sad to see that it is gone.
I had it on two machines, and upgraded to pro when the developer made it free to do so.
Now one machine has been completely reformatted and I can't unlock it anymore... anyone know if the licence is archived anywhere? or if I can get the licence or information from my one computer that still has a 'good' copy?
Thanks in advance!

Search Google for License.notify.zip to find it. MacUpdate should offer the license as an additional download since the author abandoned the project and gave this license file away for free.

Agree that it is a pity that is is no longer supported. But since i installed OS X 10.8, it works absolutely flawless (again). To early to dump :-)

Terrific, discreet interface, and very fast & efficient piece of software, my dream of an app come true. It strikes me as a utility Apple should have provided as soon as MacOS X came out.

BTW the site is down (certificate problem and i won't take the risk) I would be grateful if someone could point me to where Notify stores its prefs? I would like to use it on several machines.

Very Sad Update: now that the trial period is over, i can't use notify anymore as the page it takes you to to register is 404.
Same for the "trick" the developer refers to above, stored on a 404 page :((

What the hell! This is the second piece of software I've purchased that has been discontinued. If your going to abandon the project at least give the code out so someone can continue the work.

Works really well for 10.6 and below. Lion support is just ok. It's functional but a little unstable.

If you want to be notified for both Gmail- and IMAP-accounts, this still is the best app in spite of the instability under Lion. So I still use it and haven't found a good replacement yet.
Just to bad that this software has been discontinued!

And so ends my use of Notify Pro. If anyone has been following the developer's forums, there have been several requests for POP support in addition to IMAP. I absolutely need both to be able to view all of my email accounts. Well this was the official response from the developer today:

"We will not be supporting POP as we (me) don't have the resources to implement another protocol. It's as simple as that. Sorry!"

And the thread was closed. Still on the hunt for a complete menubar-based solution.

when i reply to a message using notify pro, the reply starts a new conversation/thread instead of continuing the original conversation. notify pro addresses the recipient using only their email address, whereas if you reply via your browser, it will use the name and email address, thus continuing the conversation.

USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION IF AT ALL. I upgraded to Notify Pro and learned the hard way that this malicious little app can and will REMOVE emails from the server on its own (files are DELETED, not moved to the Trash, as checking Webmail showed). It did this nasty trick without apparent cause, and without my clicking its "delete" button. ABSOLUTELY NOT WORTH THE TRIVIAL CONVENIENCE OF NOT HAVING TO OPEN YOUR EMAIL CLIENT. I would strongly advise against using this app. I've removed it from my system for good.

When I delete from the Notify interface it doesn't dump it in Trash, it dumps it in IMAP/Trash. This is pretty annoying. http://cl.ly/894d09a7e0e8842ceba5

No preferences to change this.
