As it is written in other post, To make Geary work,it is necessary to change gmail setting to less secure connection.

Is there any secure email notifier?

searching in Software Center results in some applications, however I am not sure which one is secure and works fine.

    N1 uses OAuth to authenticate rather than IMAP authentication. That means you won't have to turn on the "less secure" option in Gmail. Here's a bit more on what exactly Google means by "less secure": security.stackexchange.com/a/72371 – Ryan DeBeasi Jan 23 '16 at 13:04
  • I installed the program. it is fine. I wish there was a notifier on top panel with number of unread emails. – Woeitg Jan 23 '16 at 18:41
