Does anyone know of an app that can notify me of new emails in my Gmail in specific time intervals? I mean, I want to set up hour intervals when it is ok to receive notifications.

I have researched a lot and seen apps like pushmail, where you need to forward to another email address, but I wan't something that does not need my mails to be forwarded.

The app will need:

  • Gmail IMAP connection
  • Notifications on new mail
  • Quiet periods (or else OK-to-notify periods)
  • Custom notification sounds
  • Nice UI ;)
  • I use Growl. It does not have all the features you request, but it is supported by many well-known applications: mail.app, cyberduck, dropbox, twitter, transmission....

  • Can you use Mail? Turn off Push notifications and enable fetch, you can then set to fetch every hour, or manually (when you open mail app) Commented Jan 5, 2012 at 20:20

Except for your requirement of setting quiet-times, one possible option would be Google Notifier. Perhaps you could have a cron process that starts and stops Google Notifier at specific times?
