The easier way to check your Gmail
I downloaded and installed Gmail Notifier, what now ?
1. Go to your Gmail account settings and enable IMAP ( See Figure 1 ).

Account login in one click
Ctrl + Click - press and hold the Ctrl key then click your account email. Gmail Notifier will start the session locally on your computer, and then will redirect to your Gmail account using https and your default browser.
