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) Jan 5 '12 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?
