Email notification on webmail arrival?


Hi guys

I use the webmail feature of cPanel to collect and read my mail. What would be great is being notified of any new mail arriving in my inbox. Is this possible? I can check pop3 mail through my messenger program, but surely as i am using webmail i am unable to do this, or am I? any advice or suggestions are appreciated.

thx

You can check your mail server using pop3 protocol. it is a standard. and after you can collect using any email prog to collect.

Check also phpMailNotification freeware

forward and icq

could always forward the emails to your main address, that's what I do and it works out good.


I think ICQ has a function that allows you to get notification when you get emails

All this stuff is freeware, unlike mailbell.

Kind of along the same lines... but...

Does anyone know if there is a screensaver out there like you see in all those movies that display that you have new email?

You know those cool spinning mailboxes in the corner of the screen, or the "1 New Email" message that floats accross.
