Those of you who use Gmail may have discovered the very useful Google Notifier tool.
Google Notifier is a local application that notifies you when an email is received. Although you have to be connected to the internet to receive notifications, you don’t have to be currently using a browser.
The main complaint of Google Notifier is that by default it checks for new emails every 30 minutes or so. Having such a large gap in time between email checks defeats the purpose of having an email notification program- to be notified the minute you receive an email!
Heres how to fix the problem:
- Open Google Notifier and log into your Gmail account.
- Click on the envelope icon at the top of the screen.
- While holding down the command and option keys at the same time, click preferences.
- In the box that pops up type the information next to “AutocheckInterval” and “Value” (yes, it is case sensitive).
- Click set.
Your Google Notifier will now check for mail every minute instead of every 30 minutes.
