BT broadband Yahoo Premium/ Outlook Express. Windows XP SP2. Is there a (pref.free) program available to provide me with notification of received emails... whether audibly, by some form of popup or whatever. Any help much appreciated ta!

You can do that in Outlook Express. Tools > Options Under the General Tab is an option to play a sound when mails is received. Set it to download mail every (say) 10 minutes, and the sound you selected will play when new mail arrives. New mail is also shown by a little envelope in system tray in OE

Thanks a lot Jeffers22, buscrew and VoG. Bit of information overload I think! Currently working my way through the posts/links etc.. I'm sure I'll find what I'm looking for somewhere in that lot. Again many thanks.

Ya know The Crazy Frog? I've put that as my notification of incoming mail....probably sends the neighbours mad, but I CAN hear it downstairs!!!!!

AngeTheHippy, I'm glad I don't live next door to you!! :D
After a good mooch, I downloaded Agent E-mail Notifier (v.1.0.a)'AGMAIL' by Softnik. It works great with BTYahoo mail but sadly I cannot access my Hotmail account by using pop3/smtp protocol unless I subscribe to the paid for service. Merlin appears as if by magic to give brief details of received mail and I've configured AGMAIL to launch Outlook Express when mail is found to facilitate instant access to it. Many thanks again for the assistance.

I know you have this thread ticked but thought I would just add this as an option , you can download Incredimail for free , you can add all sorts of emoticons and animations to your emails and lots of other stuff including getting a notifier of an email arriving , you can choose from several different ones.Anyway you can have a look at it here click here

Just a thought. If you use Mailwasher. Open it. Then minimize it. It will then sit in your system tray and let you know when incoming mail arrives.
