Is it possible to get notified by popup and/or sound, when new mail arrives?

I know from experience that a lot of users really want this.
if a am correct, the unread count in the folder lists, only updates when you click on one of the folders.

We will release a systray toaster soon that can do new mail notificaitons. Eventually we'd like it to handle mailto: links and calendar reminders.
The folder counts will update on any server action. So clicking on a folder, reading a message, tagging a message etc.

Actually, it updates on any user action that causes a call to the server. It also updates after 5 minutes of idle time.

Another option is to use a POP or IMAP mail notifier. My personal favorite is PopTray.

wouldn't it be possible to trigger a popup when new mail arrives?

We are now working with Domino webaccess and this works that way.

A systray icon is not platform independent and i think you should try to avoid it, but of course that is my opinion :)

How about a SMS msg? That'd be great!

That's not exactly in the product now (and our product management team will note the request), but there's a variant today: in the Options/Mail page, you can choose to "Enable address for new mail notifications:" There, you can enter another email address where you want to be notified -- and many mobile network operators provide an email address that's tied to your SMS number (such as 6502121212@messaging.sprintpcs.com)....

Another way could be sending an Instant Message, Implement a listner class and let it deliver all the new messages to the preferred IM account. Found an example about posting to yahoo IM's ...

This

I don't think it will make it. It needs some work to compile/work with the latest code and at the moment we don't have the cycles. At this point I don't think it will make GA.
