visual e-mail alerts

Is it all Hollywood hype and/or sci-fi or are there really programs that will give you a visiual alert when you receive an e-mail?

I'm thinking of the films you've got mail and mission impossible.

tks all ;-)

My mailer, Becky, has an extension that pops up when new mail arrives; has to be set for automatic collection (obviously enough!).

Mailwasher will display a little icon and play a sound file ("you've got mail" if you want, or any wav file) when it checks mail also.

Probably others out there that do the same thing too.

I have incredimail installed and it has loads of different notifiers that come on the screen when you recieve email. You can also subscribe to the premium version and get even more.

Also check out Mozilla Thunderbird, I find it excellent and it pos up a little message telling you new mail has arrived, and which account it is. If you are away when this happens, and don't see it it leaves an unopened envelope in the system tray.
