Simple gmail notifier

I have a bunch of gmail accounts that I have to monitor.  

I am looking for a really simple utility that will just let me know when a new messages comes in to the inbox.
For security reasons, I don't want to have the inboxes open on my computer and I don't want to be able to get to the inbox without having to do a full log in via the normal gmail web client.
I just want something that would sit in the system tray and when I right click it I would see a list of gmail accounts and a number next to each account telling me how many messages are in each inbox.

Has anyone seen anything like this?  Or should I build it?

Thanks, K.

I use Pop Peeper for that (www.poppeeper.com). It sits in the system tray and can have a small pop up OR a sound OR both to let you know mail has come. You can set it to check all accounts. Works in Vista and UP.

I use it all the time to screen mail (like EE mail here) and delete what I do not want before downloading it. It works great.

Pop Peeper is a fine tool. I had Pop Tray before that but Pop Tray would not work on Windows 8 which I have. But Pop Peeper works on Windows 8 and also on my Windows 7 machine. I like it and I depend up on it.

Thanks and good luck with it.
