Gdow 2007 reviewed by Softpedia

Gdow 2007 is an interactive Gmail notifier for Windows (all version with .net framework installed, XP, Vista, Windows 7).

Here is a list of (some of) its Gmail account management capabilities :

  - move mail to trash
  - move mail to archives
  - spam mail
  - unspam mail
  - star mail
  - delete mail for ever
  - see message body
  - reply
  - download attachments
  - empty spams, trash, drafts
  - send rapidly short mails with dragable attachments
  - pick, add and edit contacts (with full details)


Gdow 2007 simple configuration consists in :

 - choice of mailing software (for new mail, reply, etc...) :
     - Gdow's interface
     - default email client
     - gmail in default browser
 - action of Gdow's system tray icon
 - notifying panel option :
     - font (color,size,type, etc..)
     - background color
     - transparency

All capabilities are intelligently accessible through a "one click toolbar" (06/25/2008) or right click on notifying panel and Gdow's system tray icon.

Thus Gdow 2007, associated with a Gmail account, is one of the fastest way to manage emails.
