need mail alert in tray


I'm seeking some kind of mail checker that will display an icon in my tray when I get an email. I have a pop3 account, but thought about switching email providers if I found a linux email monitor that did that.

Any recommendations?

I'd change to a yahoo email address if the linux version of yahoo messenger was like the windows version, where you'd see the blinking icon.

BTW I'm running on Knoppix LiveCD.

That is a feature of Kmail, when using KDE.

KBiff is a standalone application, but yes, by default, it will open KMail as your mail client if you click the mail icon; this behaviour can be changed though - I use it with Evolution..

It is a KDE app though, and isn't necessarily installed by default on a KDE desktop. Gnome offers similar functionality with their mail checking panel application.
