Very Nice... just what I've been looking for... But.... I have 1484 messages in my inbox... looks like it can only handle 999 ?! Also the back setup is a little crowded.... but other than that I LIKE it! :-)

I think that this app is very useful, only one thing bothers me... The fact that when you click the widget to go to your mail, you can see your password in plain text in the browser URL. I DONT like that . Many times you are with friends at home ... etc... You should fix that

Has the widget stopped working for anyone else? I am guessing that Google has changed their feed somehow.

The best gmail notifier for someone with a lot of widgets (like me) - it is hard to miss the number of mails outstanding. One minor problem is that the "mail" option (setting what happens when the widget is clicked on) always opens Mail.app. This need not be the default mail application; I use Entourage and don't even have Mail.app set up, for example.

SECURITY WARNING: from MacInTouch.com today (6/17/05) "Regarding the gotMailG Dashboard widget, I pulled this from my Safari 2.0.1 history - after clicking on this widget to automatically log me into my gmail account, I saw this in the address bar of Safari - where you see the red X's was my username and password being transmitted in the clear, and for anyone to see in my browser history. https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth? service=mail&Email=XXXXXXXXXXXXX&Passwd=XXXXXXXXX &continue=https://gmail.google.com/gmail?ui=html&zy=l"

If I had the time, the things I would do... 1. Clean up the GUI on the back. Change the minutes to a dropdown, I'm sure Google wouldn't appreciate someone checking every minute. 2 Make the front more elegant and mac-like. 3. Not sure if this is possible, but.. Determine where the widget is on the screen and flip appropriately. If the widget is placed on the left it works without a hitch, but placed on the right half of the widget goes off screen.

Why not use the pop and smtp settings in Gmail itself so than you can use Gmail in Mail and see in the dock how many Gmails you've got in your account...?
