With the Gmail notifier settings you will be able to know when you have an Email in your Gmail inbox. No matter what operating system you are using, may be it is your Windows Vista operating system or others, every time you receive some new forms of Email in your Gmail account, the Gmail notifier will inform you that some Email message is waiting for you in your inbox.

The notification process includes a small window that pops up on your Windows Vista or other operating system desktop. You can view the pop up window at right hand corner in the bottom of your desktop. With this small pop-up, Gmail will let you know about the person who sent you a message via Email. You will also be able to get a preview of the sent mail message. Depending on the preview you will get to know the importance of the Email.

If you click on the notifier, you will be directly taken to the Email that has been stored into your Gmail inbox. But, if in case, you feel that the message is not that important and you want to delete, you have to open your Gmail account and delete it because direct erasing of the message from your notifier is not possible.

With such kind of notifier you can be able to set the Gmail as the default program of Email. So whenever you click on the links of Email in the Web page, you will be directed to the Gmail account from where you can send Emails.
