There is no denying it, the most popular e-mail clients out there are full blown resource hogs! When all you want to do is be notified when you have a new e-mail message you have instead something chugging along in the background using up valuable system memory. Whilst insignificant on powerful gaming machines this resource usage can have a real negative effect on your “average” home or office low spec work computer. The sole purpose of Checkmail Gmail is to do away with the need to leave a full e-mail client running, instead CheckMail Gmail will notify you whenever a new mail message hits your Gmail inbox and give you the option of launching webmail or a e-mail client of your choosing. Once you’ve dealt with your new messages you can safely close your e-mail client and Checkmail Gmail will set happily using very little resources until the next e-mail arrives.
