Gmail Notifier – “Cannot connect to your mailbox. Service temporarily unavailable”

May 7th, 2009 · No Comments · Google

If you have installed the latest version of Gmail Notifier on Windows you may experience issues when trying to get it to work properly. You may continue to receive a message “Cannot connect to your mailbox. Service temporarily unavailable.”

The most likely cause for this is that you are using https:// in your Gmail settings, therefore the Gmail Notifier cannot connect to the mailbox. Well, luckily there is a fix for this issue — instead of switching to http:// and leaving your mailbox unsecure you can install a registry entry which will resolve the problem for you.


1. Download http://www.google.com/mail/help/downloads/notifier_https.zip
2. Open up the folder.
3. Double-click on the file called notifier_https.reg to install it.

4. Click ‘yes’ when you’re asked to confirm if you want to add the
information to the registry.
5. Restart the Notifier.

Best of luck! You are fixed…
