in 12.04 i used an app that used NotifyOSD to notify me if i got one of my three gmail accounts. and sadly i cant find it for 13.04. Both gm-notify and gm-notifier only works with 1 gmail acount.

Is there any notifier app that works with multiple gmail accounts and uses notofyOSD?

Unity Mail Install unity-mail

With Unity Mail we can handle multiple gmail accounts. You will get an OSD notification whenever you receive a new mail showing the sender, and the subject of a mail.

enter image description here

In addition it adds a launcher icon to display the count of unread messages, integrates with the mail indicator to turn it blue, and displays a list of mails in the drop down menu there.

Install via the software center

For newer releases (>= 15.10) Unity-Mail can be installed from the official ppa:


  • I tried this, but multiple account handling isnt so great... it always opened my first mail's page, so I'm sticking with popper, thanks anyway!

  • Takkat, you're using Ubuntu 13.04, right? I see you don't have those status icons (Available, Away, Busy...) in the Messaging Menu? How did you get rid of them? Thanks. :)

  • @user74660: sorry to say - I made the screenshots from a VM which got deleted later. No chance to find out what I did there. Related: askubuntu.com/questions/185021/…

  • @NaGeL182 for Unity Mail to open corresponding account page you may use this answer askubuntu.com/a/227047/284664, link format for different gmail accounts is following: mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox (change number after 'u' for different accounts)
