server mailbox alert

I was reading tonight about outlook 2003 having the desktop alert feature built in to it which will alert you with a small destop popup if any mail arrives in your server mailbox (not your ISP mailbox)
Outlook 2003 does not need to be running for this to work, which is very handy.

And it got me wondering if there is a similar feature in any of the Linux mail programs that will monitor your mail server account and alert you to anything in your mailbox.
if not a built in feature then even a 3rd party app which can integrate with others would be good.
I thought this was a really good feature, especially for absentminded muppets like myself who often forgets to check his mail.

Thanks in advance for any ideas, advice etc

There are buckets of small packages that do this... gkrellm springs to mind for black/fluxbox, or korn if you're running kde.
