Can I get desktop notification of new hotmail email
Using XP. Just set up a new hotmail email account. Is there a way to get notification of new email to my desktop? When I was using thunderbird, an icon would appear in the status bar/system tray indicating the arrival of new email. Can this be done with hotmail?

This sounds great. Thanks much.

I've read, that there are some issues with reading HTML mail through it (text cut-offs), but just for notification, it should work good.

I am back to square one. Downloaded eprompter and installed. Was not notified. Went to eprompter forum and read that as of 12/29/08, hotmail may not work with eprompter.
Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks again. This one works with hotmail. Sent email to my hotmail address. After a couple of minutes, received both an icon in my system tray and a sound.
Now, if only the Dolphins win today, all of my dreams will have come true.
