Use GMail with GoToMeeting

Use GMail with GoToMeeting

By using a free application called GMail notifier, you can have GMail open in your web browser when you schedule a meeting through the GoToMeeting software.

1. Download GMail Notifier
2. Install GMail Notifier
3. Login with GMail account information
4. Right-click the Notifier icon in your system tray, and select Options.
5. Check the box next to Use Gmail for internet mailto: links.
6. Click OK.
7. Double click GMail Notifier icon in the lower right of the screen to launch and login to GMail.

Setup GoToMeeting

1. Right click the GoToMeeting icon in the lower right of the screen
2. Choose Preferences
3. Click Integrations
4. Select My default email application [Switches GoToMeeting usage to ‘mailto:’ links]

If you schedule a GoToMeeting session at this point it will open a browser/new tab with a GMail Compose with the GoToMeeting session information.

This method work fine with a regular GMail account but unfortunately the free GMail Notifier does not support Google Apps, but there is a paid version t hat does.

1) – unfortunately this is a paid program that does the same thing as the free notifier, but supports Google Apps. This program is listed in the Google Enterprise Gallery – source:…amjad/#more-192

2) – this is a blog post describing how to create a normal Gmail account, and set your Apps account to forward to the regular one. The next step not described in here would to set the “Reply-To” in your new/normal Gmail account to your business address. A bit of a hack, but it’s free.

Note: The free Gmail Notifier for Mac supports Apps at this time.

  1. Ooutlook keeps defaulting no matter what I try. It was working for a bit, but now it uses Outlook each time. Any idea why?
