postfix / fetchmail email notification

Hi you all !

I've setup postfix as my MTA on SuSE 9.2 and configured fetchmail to retrieve emails from an external pop3 account.

This works just fine.

But, i use my linux box as firewall / router into internet and am working on another PC (sometimes from home, sometimes from office), so I often wouldn't recognize, when an email was retrieved from my mailbox.

Is there a possibility to setup an email notification (either in fetchmail or in postfix), which would send an email to my office address, in case a new email arrived on my system ?

Thanks for any help in advance.
