Red face Email notifier

Hi,
I need a simple free email notifier that supports both Yahoo! Mail and Microsoft Mail (outlook.com) for Windows 7. Any suggestions?
Thanks, EldonW.

I use PopMan. Although technically it is an email client I just use it as a notifier. It is totally free and, once set up, works perfectly. I have used it since early this year with no problems whatsoever.

Default Email notifier.

Thanks jim. I've downloaded PopMan and will install and try it. Unfortunately, the 529 KB CHM help file I downloaded is empty.

I can send you a copy of the help file if needed but I don't think you can attach a file with the email function in Gizmo's. If you need it anyway then PM me your email address and I will send.

Thanks again. The website has a second link to download the help file, which I did. But it's unnecessary as the program does include a help file.

There are two other email notifiers.

Spiffy: http://members.multiweb.nl/kevin/spiffy/

This one is only for Gmail though.

Gmail Notifier Pro: http://www.gmailnotifier.se/

The unregistered version is free for personal use, but only monitors 2 accounts.

It can be used for Gmail and Outlook both though, and even Yahoo.

These are fine probably for Gmail or Google etc. but I hate anything to do with most products connected with MS, Google, Yahoo and many other intrusive providers. I don't use an email client but use another online email program and PopMail works fine with that and, presumably, most other less well know online mail providers.
