Howard Email Notifier Review

Howard Email Notifier is a 100% free software for Windows. The installation is simple and straight forward – no browser hijack, no adware, no promotional software, and 100% virus clean. Immediately after installation is complete, you will see a new icon in the System Tray (Taskbar) from where you can launch the program interface for configuring it.

Howard Email Notifier in its current version can notify emails from Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Zoho, Mail, Notes, and Virgilio accounts. To add a account, go to the respective tab and check the box Check Gmail for new mails, and then click on link located at the bottom. There is a small glitch here which I experienced in two of my test PCs running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Clicking on the link “Click here.” didn’t do anything. If you face this problem, close the program and restart Windows. Try clicking the link again, and it should launch the corresponding email API, for example Google page for Gmail. Sometimes you need to need on the link and then close the program window for the email sign up window to appear – some UI bugs definitely need to be fixed.

You can set the time interval for checking new emails, tray icon style, and the new mail sound aswell. You can add only one account from a service provider at a time. For instance, if you wanted to add another Gmail account, you will have to click on the link that says “Do you want to change the email account? Click here.”, and then sign in. This means you have signed out of the first account.
