This tool stays in the system tray and once you receive an email, it opens a small notification window and by clicking the window you are taken to your Gmail account. It can monitor up to five Gmail accounts and each account can be configured to have its own color. It is very easy to send the emails directly from the Gmail Alert tool without having to login to the respective Gmail account  and you may add signatures for the out going emails.
