Notification of new Gmail messages

Each time you receive new mail in Gmail, Google Talk will display a notification above the Google Talk icon in your system tray. You'll be able to see a snippet of the message you've received, and if there's multiple unread messages in your Gmail inbox, you can quickly scroll through your notifications by clicking the arrows at the bottom of the window.

If you don't want to see notifications for all the new messages in your Gmail inbox, right-click the notification window when you're finished reading.

Want to go straight to a message from the notification? Highlight the envelope in the left corner of the notification, and click it when it turns red. Your new message will appear in a new browser window.
