    For some odd reason, my Gmail Notifier just stopped working yesterday. It shows "No Unread Messages" even when my mailbox has new mail. I tried using the notifier on a windows computer, and it worked... so I assume it's nothing to do with my router or ports or anything.

    Anyone have any idea on what could be the problem and how to fix it? I just updated the notifier to the newest version, and I'm using the newest version of Tiger.

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem, I'm using the gmail notifier from scue, the one that looks like a postage stamp. The problem only started happening this morning, and it's not getting any information from gmail at all.

    Yeah, I just updated and it still doesn't work.

    Anyone else out there using the Mac version of notifier and not having it work? I even tried another random gmail dashboard widget and that doesn't work either. Maybe something is wrong on the google side with macs?

    I seem to be having the same problem actually, only on my iMac though, on my PowerBook it's fine :confused:

    edit: oh well, scratch that, it's not working on the PB now either.

    I just quit using it because it never seems to actually notify me if I get a new message. :( Now I compulsively check my Gmail every 5 minutes to see if anyone wants to talk to me! :p

    After reading this i checked mine and it doesn't work anymore either on my iMac (Intel Core Duo) or iBook (G4) :( It must have stopped a few days ago since my email is that old and no notice.

    I think it's a problem with who whole system. My Gmail notifier has been out for 2 days on XP, maybe they're screwing around with ther servers again.
