Visual New Mail Notification in Outlook?

  [email protected] 19:07 02 Jul 2009

When you receive a new e-mail in Outlook, it plays a tune to notify you. My grandfather is complaining however that he often doesn't hear it which can be frustrating.

Is there any way of having an on-screen notification that a new message has arrived? For example, my father who uses Incredimail has a butler that appears and knocks on his screen.

I've tried Googling but all I can find is instructions to change the sound that is played.

Tools \options\preferences\email options\advanced email options check all under when new mail arrives.... desktop alerter settings and set transparency and length of time to display and press preview
