This is very important to me as well :) I could try to help with programming, but I don't have much experience with python. I have looked your source code already.
Also I think that this is more for blueprints :)

I really would appreciate this feature...

please, please, please :-)

+1! =]

well, unfortunately this is a huge task and not very simple... I think creating a new gmail account and aggregrating the needed ones in Labels would be simpler and much more economic.

Many companies are using Google Apps for mail services and you end having a bunch of Gmail accounts for different domains that you can not simply merge in a single one

I currently use gmail-notifier ( to monitor my second account. (gmail-notify is also limited to just one account), but I would rather like to be able to start two sessions of gm-notify for consistency. (Or even better, one session monitoring multiple accounts.)

Jeremy Nickurak (nickurak) wrote :

Multiple accounts is indeed a big deal. Personal/corporate accounts is a common case.

Aggregating in a new gmail account doesn't help, because those messages in the new account don't get marked read when they're read in the other accounts.

This would be a great feature to add.

I'd LOVE to see this implemented. There isn't any extension for Chromium either so I need some tool with this feature as I want to leave FF behind....

Please! ;)

This is by far the best Gmail notifier for Lucid! Being able to add multiple Gmail accounts would be extremely helpful, though. In any case, thanks for your hard work!

I know, as you said, that this's not a simple task, but it would be a great feature! :D

All multiple accounts Gmail notifiers are not "push mode" enable.

gm-notify is the only one. This feature (multiple account handling) is more than important !

Please make a little effort ! For us !
Thank you devs !
