    Hi guys,

    Is there a program out there that will create a small popup when email arrives in my OE6, sorta like what the popup that hotmail does when messenger is opened.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could look at something like ePrompter that can check multiple email accounts (including Hotmail) and notify you via a small icon in the system tray.

    Nets to the rescue again.


    Thanks, Bud. This is actually for a friend as I am a converted Monzilla Thunderbird user (As per your recommendations a few weeks ago).

    OE, minimized or not, already displays an icon in the system tray, with sound... I don't think, NetRyder, that your program will do anything more...
    I may be wrong :eek:

    Hehe. Not a problem, Heeter. Glad to help :)

    @Ant-|-One: I haven't looked for any programs that display popup notifications like the ones MSN has, but ePrompter is different from the OE notification in that it basically checks all your email accounts separately, and displays the number of new messages on each account using a different colored circle in the system tray. OE doesn't need to be open at all...ePrompter just sits in the tray and checks for messages at user-specified time intervals.
    Hope that sort of explains it. :)

    I didn't check ePrompter's site before, my fault :(
