Back in the day, when you handled all your email with Eudora, it was easy to see when you received a new message. Now that you're using Gmail, it's not so easy to know when you've gotten your latest communication from the Nigerian Finance Minister. After all, you've got to have your machine up and running, be online, and have your web browser up and pointing at the Gmail site. If not, who knows what has recently shown up in your in box.

Spiffy helps make the whole "you've got mail" process easier to keep track of. Running as a desktop app, Spiffy can monitor up to five individual Gmail or Google Apps mail accounts. Customize your alerts so that you're always on top of things. You can set it to autostart, so whenever your machine is on, you'll know what's happening in Gmail world.

A Windows application, Spiffy is a free download. You should be able to use it on systems running XP, Vista, or Windows 7. You'll also need to have version 2.0 of the .NET Framework installed, as well as a Gmail or Google Apps account.
