New mail notifications

Do you also want the Outlook style envelope and the audio notification when a new mail arrives in Gmail?  You can now do that with Google's Gmail Notifier.

You can download it from here:

It will take you through a short install.  After the install, you will have to type in your username and password.  Your username will be "Firstname.Lastname@lemarscsd.org" and the same password you use to login to Gmail.  Check the "Remember Password" check box if you don't want to have to type in your username and password every time your computer boots.

If you click on the SUBJECT of the email in the quarantine and then click the "Deliver to Inbox" button you will then have an "Approve Sender" button that will make it so emails from that person no longer get quarantined.
