Use Google Notifier for more than one account Internet
If you have more than one account with Gmail (this works with Google for your domain accounts, too), you can use Google Notifier to notify you of your Gmail and Google Calendar activity by simply making a copy of the Google Notifier application in the application folder. You then simply change the name of the application to something relevant and, after launch, the applications will coexist in the menu bar.

Use Google Notifier for more than one account
Authored by: Quizmaster on Oct 25, '06 09:48:48AM

I have two Gmail accounts and followed the instructions of this hint. However, when tick the box under 'remember password in keychain' the application Keychain Access itself appears to have problems handling two of the same applications, despite renaming them. My two Google Notifiers are now logging in on the same account, since both (renamed) applications are listed as 'Google Services' in Keychain Access. Is there a workaround for this problem?

This won't work for long, certainly not after a restart. It doesn't matter what you name the app, the preference files and keychain stuff is still the same. And the Google Notifier doesn't work with Google For Your Domain, according to Google.

This did indeed work for you. Just don't let the keychain remember your password. It is a bit annoying to have to reenter your password but it does work.

I have posted a guide on how to set this up so that you can have as many as you want and you do not need to punch in your user/password for each every time you log out, restart etc.
