    Gmail Notifier

    Now that we're all trying out Gmail (and each have an extra 27 free accounts to give away), I thought I'd mention a neat little utility called Gmail Notifier. It's a handy tool to show if you have new mail without opening your browser:

    The Gmail Notifier is a downloadable Windows application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages, and shows you their subjects, senders and snippets, all without your having to open a web browser.

    I've checked it out -- it works well. And no worries about inadvertently downloading malware along with the program. You can read their FAQ for details. Just a little somethin' somethin' to make your daily email checking routine easier.
