today i logged on my computer and out of nowhere gmail notify stopped working and opens that website, i can double click on it and get to my inbox though, i just tried reinstalliing and samething happened
I'm having the same problem here as well.
I wouldn't be suprised if the problem is caused by changes to the gmail login procedure without them updating their Gmail Notifier software. In some places gmail requests you type a random string of letters as they are displayed in an image, perhaps the notifier is being confused by this request.
Did a bit of searching, didn't find a straightforward solution. A lot of people seem to be having this problem as well.
I don't think so, I still use the Gmail Notifier 22.214.171.124 eventhough it periodicaly and silently forces the download and installation of 126.96.36.199 ... (have to modify the registry key under Run so that 188.8.131.52 starts and not 184.108.40.206, I delete the installation folder aswell).
Why I do this ? It's just because I don't like the 220.127.116.11's icons and much prefer 18.104.22.168's ones.
Hmmm... You can login to your account by double-clicking on it but it is erroring when it checks for new email.
I suppose, depending how they have it programmed, that it may be timing out and thus causing the problem. I say this because of our geographic locations. You're on the other side of the Atlantic. It could be a fault on the part of Google or it could be a problem somewhere along the path to the Google servers.
Of course, Gmail has made updates on numerous occasions. What version of the Notifier you are using should have some of an impact.
