[UPDATE 7/3/15: Google has killed the notifier function as part of its attempts to drive us all towards Chrome.]
I've been using Gmail notifier for some time. It's not that I particularly want to know when I get gmail, since I have that forward to my main account anyway. No, the great thing about gmail notifier is that I can set it to make Gmail the default email program for “mailto” links on web pages.
But a while ago I started getting error messages from the notifier; I didn't mind not having the unread mail count, but there's something about error messages at boot up that makes me grumpy.
An error has occurred.
Cannot connect to your mailbox.
Service temporarily unavailable.
Except it seemed permanent.
So I was happy to find out that the problem was because I forced gmail to use https, and that there's info on a patch,
If you've tried the new https setting and are using the Gmail Notifier, you've probably noticed a conflict between them by now. Good news for Windows users – we have a small download available that will set the Notifier to use https. Here's the instructions:
2. Open up the folder.
3. Double-click on the file called notifier_https.reg to install it.
4. Click 'yes' when you're asked to confirm if you want to add the information to the registry.
5. Restart the Notifier.
And you're done! The Notifier will now work with Gmail set to always use https. If you decide you don't want to use that setting anymore, you'll need to install the other file in the zip folder – notifier_https_undo.reg – to reset Notifier.
And it works!
Works like a charm! Obrigado
Thank you very much
this is exactly what i have looking for
Thanks much guys….. this is what I was looking for since long time.
Thanks a lot. It works!
I applied the fix. Many thanks. And I get now the enveloppe icon instead of the horribly looking previsous exclamation mark.
HOWEVER, afet ticking the box “link to’ under “options” in the Gmail Notifier, I still cannot access gmail from a send to command in windows 7.
Any further help will be most appreciated !
PERFECT. thank YOU
Superb! You found the secret of the universe. . .
Thank you again!
And you can always change Gmail settings and disable “Don’t always use HTTPS” setting
Thank you so much! x
Wow, what a relief. I´m really greatfull. After years of frustration, it works.
Thank You SO Much from DENMARK
Thank you!!! What a relief. Why on earth doesn’t Google incorporate this patch?
Hey thanks for posting this. I just used it and it worked great!
Thank you bro, it worked perfect..how did you know that?
thank you – it worked! keep up the good work
Thanks! My one big problem now I need to figure out is how to get the notifier to only notify me on my very very important messages(ex: from email address notify)..?
My workaround I ended up doing was creating an extra gmail account and using the filter/forwarding setting which I guess works just fine, but would really love to see an advanced version of this notifier application!
You saved my sanity, I need my Email immediately and having to check Gmail manually in the browser has been driving me crazy for the last three days.
Thanks for posting this! Not sure why I needed this extra bit but happy you posted it.
Thank you soooooo much! I’ve been working on this all day, and finally ran across this fix. You are a genius!!!!
Thanks, man, worked like a charm!
Thank you soooo much!!
I had the problem on 2 computers, fixed worked fine on the first but just popped up a notepad window with this:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Fala ti brate, svaka ti se dala.
Life saver. Worked like a charm. Thanks!!
Hey Thanks that worked for me after I restarted my computer. Happy Days!!!
I’ve been trying to solve this problem for months but because of you it has been solved
