    You will need a third party application. GMail is not a pop3 e-mail service.

    There's a little HTTP->POP3 utility called Pop Goes The Gmail (PGTGM) that will allow you to access your Gmail account using a mail client.

    See "my" thread:
    http://forum.osnn.net/showthread.php?t=39000

    Does not check gmail (not like Pop Goes The Gmail) , just seats between you and gmail for pop3 access with any client (not only Windows, a priori...)
    Works fine for me and those I converted last night ;)

    Gmail Notifier 0.1, check if you have new Gmail

    Its currently a toolbar item (I'll do a statusbar version next week), and you click on it to login (with an nice login window). After you login, clicking on it will open gmail.

    I stress that this is a hack - I am loading gmail into a hidden browser, and when gmail refreshes itself, so will the icon.

    ***Update**
    The number is the amount of new mails in the inbox.

    Also, it seems that it fails if you have never logged into gmail before with the profile - must be a cookie issue or such.
