[rel] Gmail Notifier Plus for Windows 7

Recommended Posts

daty2k1    9
All of those jumplist problems are mostly from Microsofts buggy 7destkop interop dlls. They didn't test them very well.

Also, yes using the actual emails instead of RSS would be good as it would also allow a mark as read feature.

Also, pinning an email does nothing since you repopulate the list each right click. Why not disable the pin button in the jumplist object?

Yeah I guess this is the problem. I think they will release the final version of the dlls around the time Windows 7 goes RTM. Hopefully it will be fixed by then. I'd love to remove the pin button but it doesn't seem possible at the moment.

Also setting check time to 0 seems to cause it to never check. (I'm assuming you just multiply the time by 60?)

How do you set it to 0? The application doesn't allow that :D

I can't remove items from the list. I can click it, remove, but it doesn't happen.

That's because I didn't put any code to do it because I didn't think it would be useful. But now that you mention it, I think it could be useful if you want to see messages that couldn't be displayed before because of the jump list item limit.

Something happened from 1.1 to 1.2 that fixed my jumplist problem in Win7RC x64. I had to run it in XP SP3 caompat. mode before to get them - now I have them running the exe as normal. Appears to be fixed on my end.

That is fantastic! If I didn't already use Outlook, I would certainly be using this.
Yeah, same here. I really want to use it, but as I use Outlook it's pointless to :p

You guys really use Outlook to handle Gmail? Don't you hate how it kills "threaded" convos?

I understand the new Outlook 2010 will fix that, actually.

Could someone upload GmailNotifierPlus-v1.2.zip to somewhere else, please? (preferably localhostr, as Mediafire is blocked here, and I can't seem to download it even with a web proxy.

Yes, by the way, when I click Compose Mail, it sends me is not to create a new letter, but just in a inbox.

This is a nice app for those who like to use the Gmail interface. That was all I used for a while. For those of you who like a dedicated program, but cant stand outlook and cant get Thunderbird to be really seamless with Gmail, try Postbox. Its lightweight, based on Firefox, has seamless Gmail integration and some good extra organizational tools. http://www.postbox-inc.com/

hi, i just registered to say thank you for sharing this app. i am not a programer but i really like both, the idea and the implementation of the notifier. it seems to be caching up with win7 users and i really hope to see it grow. i didn't have the time to read the entire thread yet, but i noticed there was an issue with some people using 64bit windows. i am using version 1.2 with 7201 x64 and as far as i can tell everything works as expected. one feature that i would like to see would be the ability to open the default email client when i click on the notifier, instead of the browser.

again, all the best daty2k1, and thanks for this app.

will.

Thanks for the great application! I just wanted to point out a little bug I've noticed: sometimes the background of the Aero Peek preview of the notifier turns black. The attached image should give you a better idea of what's going on. Let me know if you need any extra info. I'm running Windows 7 RC x64.

Thanks again!

Edit: There's probably no way to do this, but can it be eliminated from the Alt-Tab screen? Thanks!

Updated with new version 1.2 Get it here.

What's new in 1.2:

- Google Apps support (Thanks abirdd for the account :))

- Application will no longer appear first in alt-tab

- Fixed mail counter in preview when there are more than 99 unread messages

- Additional bug fixing

What's new in 1.1:

- Updated unread counter icon to make it clearer

- Added multi-language support: English, French and Spanish (thanks Demgel!) at the moment.

- Added automatic login to gmail when opening a message or the inbox

I'd like to thank Chris Ivarson (which I completely forgot to do when I first released the app, sorry!) for his great Gmail icon.

Hello everyone. I've been a member of this forum for a while now but I've never actually contributed. So for my first post, I'd like to present you a little tool I've made:

As you have probably guessed, this is a Windows 7 only mail notifier that will sit in the taskbar:

ngwrvb.pngfaq2on.png

It allows you to see a preview of all unread mails you have. Clicking on the button in the center will open the mail in Gmail:

nwy43o.png2wqtkw4.png

Unread mails are also accessible from the jump list. Clicking on one of them will also open it in Gmail.

And that's about it! It is using Gmail secured RSS feed to retrieve the mails so it should be pretty safe. Credentials are saved using a machine's dependent encryption. Here are some more screens:

Of course, feel free to report any bug you might encounter :)

Nice little app. One suggestion...honor the default browser when opening the inbox or selecting compose mail or make it configurable for which browser (assuming multiple installed) should be used for gmail activity.

Works fine for me with Firefox but looks like it doesn't work with IE either. Thanks, I'll look into it.

Happens to me only when my graphic driver crashes. Does anything happen before you notice that?

It should be opening in your default browser as I don't specify any specific browser when opening the link. It handled by Windows. It is working fine for me when I change my default browser.

I cant in any way access the change account settings, it shows in the popup view, but when i click it nothing happens. I wanted to change it because i typed @gmail.com in the first box

A few people reported this bug as well. I haven't found what the problem is yet but it doesn't matter if you typed @gmail.com, it should be working fine too.

The only way i can re-access the options in this case is by closing the app. and re-open it. Then i have the options menu again.

Didnt notice yet what is the reason that causes this problem.

I'm really starting to think that all these issues are just bugs in the Windows 7 API for .NET. Wouldn't be too surprising considering it's still in beta. According to the MSDN page, final version should be released around the time Windows 7 goes RTM. Hopefully it will be working fine for everyone :)

Same reason here.

Ok. Haven't found a way to prevent that yet :(

I like this. You should make the icon turn blue though when there is unread mail in the inbox, or at least make it an option.
