After using notifiers and/or Thunderbird/Pegasus/Outlook 2000/2002/2003 consistently since day dot (does anyone still use Pegasus, is less ugly yet??), I find myself now exclusively using Gmails web access, and rather than being pro active and getting a notification of new email, then going to read it, I simply check often, as I get anywhere from ten to fifty useful emails a day (not counting forum notifications etc), so there is nearly always something to read and reply to.

While I am at work I always have gmail open and check every couple of minutes. At home i have Outlook 2007 open and checking every minute and it plays a loud sound so i know when somethings arrived.

The notifier sucks. As does Thunderbird

Sorry to take the thread off-topic (When I used to use Gmail I used the gmail notifier plugin for Miranda-IM Messenger) but what's wrong with Thunderbird?
