    I get a nice little pop up everytime I receive Gmail. There is a button to click that takes me to my inbox so I can check it. When I click on it, nothing happens and I have to go to Gmail manually. How can I fix this? :(

    that stupid app is always getting F'd up...

    I just quit if for a few days, and then reopen it and it sorts itself out so far..

    did you turn off the google calendar portion of it? when i turned it off (i don't use google calendar) it disabled the gmail portion. since i dont use the calendar, i just keep using the older version (gmail notifier instead of the google notifier)...

    happens to me too. i programmed quicksilver so that when i press F2 it opens up that way, when i see the red envelope, i just hit F2 and i'm at my inbox.

    send in feedback. everytime i've sent in feedback, they've always responded quickly and nicely, usually with a response that they're working on it or offering some sort of work-around.

    Uh? I know it won't solve the problem of Gmail notifier but maybe you guys could try using to retrieve your Gmail Mail?

    I set-up both my Gmail accounts in and I set Mail to check for new mail every minute.

    Whenever I get mail, the red seal shows up on Mail's dock icon and then I just open Mail to read it.

    You should try it, it's actually pretty simple.

    Hotmail, on the other hand, won't let you configure POP3 access in Mail.

    Will Apple Mail check for new mail when it is not active?
