Can I be notified if I have Hotmail?

For various reasons, I have opened a Hotmail email account.

Is there an easy way of being notified that I have mail? I have Mailwasher Pro, but although there is an option to check Hotmail, it isn't allowed with a free account.

I don't have (I 'killed' it) Messenger and I don't really want to use that.

Anyone no a fix or fudge?

I did Google - but must have not asked the right question ;-((

Shall look into those.

Do you have Firefox? If so there is an add-on that does the job, its called Webmail Notifier, click here to download it and if you need to download Firefox then click here

Trawled through the links Technotiger offered. There were some 'less than successful' programmes!

However, have loaded Pop Peeper and that seems to be doing the job quite successfully - so I'm sticking with that (for now)

Si_L good link, but it looks as though it is only operational while you are in Firefox (which I use)? Buts as Pop Peeper is working...

Thaks for the ideas.
