Secure Your Gmail Account With SSL Encryption Without Breaking Gmail Notifier

No matter what firewall you are using, if you are connecting to services online without using encryption there's a chance for your data to be hijacked, especially if you are connecting over a wireless network. Today we'll show you how to turn on SSL for Gmail while still allowing the Gmail Notifier to work properly.

Turning on SSL for Gmail is hardly a secret anymore, but getting the Gmail Notifier to continue to work isn't quite as well known, so we're covering both just for completeness. You can also think of this as a reminder to enable SSL if you haven't already.
I know a lot of us use Gmail, this tells you how to make it more secure. This includes a registry hack so remember to always back up your registry before you make any changes.
