How can I tell if I have new Google Mail messages?

Each time you receive new mail in your Google Mail account, Google Talk will display a notification above the Google Talk icon in your system tray. You will be able to see a snippet of the message that you have received and if there are various unread messages in your Google Mail account, you can quickly scroll through your notifications by clicking the arrows at the bottom of the window.

If you do not want to see notifications for all the new messages in your Google Mail account, right-click the notification window when you have 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.
