Audio Notification With Gmail account

Hello Fellow Experts,

I was thrilled one day about a month ago to discover Gmail Notifier. It is a small piece of software that downloads in less than a minute.

For all of the Fixya experts that take giving solutions seriously, then I suggest using this software as a very viable aid in making more money.

Just download the software and choose your audio tone by going to your control panel choosing the Sounds icon. Click on the Sounds tab and scroll down to "New Mail Notification" and highlight it. Then choose a sound that you like and click on apply and finally OK.

You just enter the gmail account to use specifically with Fixya (recommend new gmail account) and the password and then notifier will let you know when you get an email from a comment due to a solution you have posted.

The best this is to turn your computer speakers up high so if you are away in another room you will know that business is ringing. This allows you to do necessary things after you have been posting a lot of solutions on Fixya and not miss some immediate responses to inquiries.

Google has available a working phone number you can get for free. I forward my primary phone to the google phone number so it will record and keep a log of all my calls when I get business with my brick and mortar TV repair. Or sometimes I foward my Google phone number to my primary phone.

The link to download is this:

I hope this helps with much success.

About the Gmail Notifier The Gmail Notifier is a downloadable application that alerts you whenever you have new Gmail messages. (Mac users, please read What is Google Notifier? for Mac-specific information.) After you download the Notifier, an icon will appear in your system tray (so you don't have to open a browser) to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages. Once you install the Notifier, you'll be able to:
  • Automatically check for new messages every two minutes.
  • See a snippet of text from up to 30 unread messages.
  • Select a sound to indicate when you have new mail.
  • Make Gmail your default email application.
To use the Gmail Notifier, you need Windows 2000, Windows XP, or a more recent version of Windows. (Download the Notifier*) The Notifier is not compatible with Windows ME at this time, but we look forward to offering support for more operating systems in the future. The Notifier is currently available in English only.
If you have an idea for improving the Notifier, please click the 'Contact Us' link in the Gmail Help Center and send us your idea using the suggestions form. But before you do, please check out some of the things we're already working on.
*Note: If you've enabled the 'Always use https' setting in Gmail, you'll need to install a patch for the Notifier to work with this setting:
  1. Download the patch (.zip).
  2. Open the folder.
  3. Double-click the notifier_https.reg file.
  4. Click yes when you're asked to confirm if you want to add the information to the registry.
  5. Restart the Notifier.
If you decide you no longer want to use the https setting, you'll need to install the other file included in the download to reset the Notifier. Use the same method as above, except with 'notifier_https_undo.reg.'
