    As far as I know Gmail is a webbased email client and the only way to access your Gmail is if you have a browser open.

    thanks for the reply but i dont think this is quite what im looking for...
    i want an app that will constantly run in background from windows start & will display a popup notification when a mail is received.upon clicking on the notification will open up chrome & load the gmail website for you to view the message.
