Sadly, Google just announced this will be killed.

This not version 1.10.4 NOT 1.10.7, as labeled. Moreover, the download on the Google download site doesn't work. (It displays a message thanking me for downloading, but nothing is actually downloaded.) I'm seeing weekly failures of Google Notifier to access my POP accounts on other servers. This started happening after I started using the 2-step security recommended by Google, although I don't know if that is the reason.)

Use this with generally no day-to-day problems. However, two problems I've noticed: occasionally icon remains red (indicating mail waiting) after login even though no mail is waiting; and it writes a huge amount to the Console, including the full headers etc. of every email that it notifies you of. This last really needs to be fixed.

My two cents; Google Notifier 1.10.4.676 as posted in Macupdate it is not the latest version: 1.10.6.879 is.
It can be DL from http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-helper/notifier_mac.html
Please note the release date of 1.10.6.879 though: August 18, 2006.
It works fine on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.3 as of April 19, 2010. Kind regards, MP

Is development for this app just completely dead or what?

While I prefer this to other solutions I've seen in some ways I still use alternatives if only because (1) they support multiple accounts—I have four—and (2) this has no support for Growl, something I find extremely surprising.

This plugin for Google Notifier addresses your concerns about it not using Growl:

I like this app, but recently my Google Notifier quits by it self. It just disappears from the menubar.

Also, it's to bad that it doesn't check every minute anymore. Sometime it takes 10 minutes before it checks...kinda ridiculous.

Hold down Command and Option, and pick Preferences from the menu. You'll be presented with a Preference dialog with two fields. In the first, type "AutocheckInterval" (with that specific capitalization). In the second, type "1". It now will check every minute.

as has been mentioned by others, this really needs a few more options in its preferences window. i'm kind of confused why google didn't provide more choices. i personally don't need my notifier to check every minute, or every 5 minutes for that matter, and yet there's no apparent way to choose the time between checks. i also had frequent problems with the notifier glitching out, weird problems with the email checks failing and never starting back up, etc. its a great utility to have, i just hope google puts a little more polish onto this.

BEWARE!!!

This version checks for mail every 5 minutes as opposed to every minute in the previous version. It would have been better if the developer had given us the option in Preferences to choose the interval like in Apple Mail.

See Jonnygozy's post in this thread to change notifier AutoCheck Frequency. Worked for me.

Thank you, Samadore, I have read it. Basically, what he says is: click the application icon in the menu bar to open the pull down menu, Command-Option click on "Preferences" and a window entitled "Defaults Editor" will open. Type "AutocheckInterval" in the Key field (case sensitive) and the number of minutes of how often you want it checked in the Value field. Click set and relaunch the application. I'm not going to try this, however, because I haven't found any other difference between this new version and the previous one and so I'm going to stick with the older one. For those of you who discarded the previous version, though, this is the remedy.

Thanks to JonnyGozy:
I think I've figure out a solution for this problem. If you click on
the mail icon, then hold down command and option keys while clicking
on preferences in the drop down box, you will be prompted with a box
that has a key and value prompt. Type "AutocheckInterval" under key
(this seems to be case-sensitive) and then under value type in the
number in minutes of how often you want it checked. You will need to
quit out of the notifier (again found in the drop down box under the
mail icon) and then run the app again for your change to take effect.
I typed in 1 and it is checking every minute or so now for me. I hope
this works for everyone else too.

General had trouble on 21 Sep 2006
Previous version kept asking me for password. This version fixed that issue, but still - if I want to create calendar entry from menu icon - web page displayed does not comply to my regional settings. I live in Europe and I wouldn't use calendar in which starts on Sunday.

If I create the event via Google Calenar - all is well, but if I invoke it from menu icon - it defaults to American settings. I'll stick with Gmail Notifier, still works for me :)

Nemesys had trouble on 25 Aug 2006
1.9.65 seems to be having the same problem than 1.9.63. Basically, if you try to access your Inbox or compose or try to read a message from the Gmail menu bar item, nothing happens if Google calendar notifications are off. I don't use the application in the Dock so I don't know if it works from the Dock or not.
However, somebody emailed me a fix yesterday. Go in the Preferences and turn on the Google calendar notifications. A page will open in your default browser and you might be prompted if you want to activate your Google calendar. Just cancel. Go back to the Google calendar notifications preference and turn it off. Now, whenever you choose something from the Gmail notifier menu, it will open up correctly in your default browser.

Same as so many others, this program is absolutely not useful for me. Although it looks better then the old Gmail Notifier, it simply does not work. The calendar part of it keeps asking me for login, the compose and all other buttons that link to gmail also don't work. I hope google fix it soon, because I have deleted my old program file.

Help! I still am using 10.3.9, and deleted the old Gmail Notifier because I didn't know the new version was for 10.4 only! Does anyone know where to get the old version?

The previous version (1.8.2) had absolutely no problems, but this new one keeps asking my login data. It happened on both my Macs (office and home) and I had unfortunately to switch it off for the moment, waiting for a quick solution...

This release appears to be buggy on my G5 iMac. It infinitely keeps requesting my gmail login info over, and over, and over...

Gmail Notifier still works fine, however.

Please address this issue, as I'm likely not the only one experiencing it.

This is happening for me too. The notifier is aware of new email, and its logged to the console. However, it doesn't update the icon, nor does it trigger any notification plugins.

humajime commented on 20 May 2006
I stopped getting notifications when someone else logged into gmail using Safari. The program seems to be linked with safari. I didn't even know they were logged in. I opened safari, went to gmail. Logged out of gmail then told the notifier to check my mail and it just worked.
