Hi:

I use Thunderbird but I haven't set it up to notified me of a new e-mail coming in.

This looks like a good place to start. There's instructions for Linux on this page just scroll the page to get to it.

Customize Mail Notifications in Thunderbird (this looks good too)

thunderbird auto checks, you can configure the frequency.

Goto edit > account settings > server settings > about 1/2 way down the page, check for new messages every x minutes. You can disable it there too.

if you want thunderbird in the systray (i suppose that's what op meant), you need to install an addon.
it doesn't do that by itself.
