Gmail is a great webmail service with features like Priority Inbox, Labs, Voice & Video Chat etc which makes it the most used webmail service ever. But since it runs in a browser it does not notifies for every new email delivered in your inbox. To avoid this, many of you have been using GMail Notifier that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It is a good tool, but is very basic with no options to configure.
Spiffy is an advanced Gmail notifier free for Windows and is completely customizable. Like GMail Notifier, it also displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages. There are several options in this free & lightweight software. To begin with, the foremost & most valuable feature of this software is the ability to periodically check up to five Gmail accounts. Most of the users have at least 2 accounts, specially the blog owners. Usually, one for personal use & second as administrator account. Spiffy is a great way to check multiple accounts at once. You can also check specific Gmail Label instead going for inbox.
You can easily configure various options which includes setting time for new email, changing tray icon on arrival of new email, customizing colors & even using proxy servers. According to the official website, here are few features of this top rated software.
- Supports free Gmail and Google Apps mail
- Check up to 5 accounts, Inbox or custom Label
- Customize interface, alerts, icons and more!
- Tell Me Again feature for missed alerts
- Proxy support
- Autostart & Hide options
- Runs from USB / Network

This software is really helpful & has no disadvantage as per my view. What do you think ? Do share your views in the comments section !
