Notifications of New Email Messages - Windows Mail

14 years ago

Is there a way to get visual notifications of new email messages without having to actually open the program (Windows Mail)?

Perhaps something like a Windows Mail icon in the system tray (not sure if that's the correct name, but the area in the lower right), with the icon showing a number reflecting the number of new and unread messages in the Inbox? At the risk of sounding overly lazy, I would find that kind of feature helpful.

I understand that a sound notification can be set up for new messages, but I generally have my computer on mute and turn on the sound only when needed. If the only kind of notification is by sound, I would probably still keep things on mute.
