Here's a quick Tip for those folks who are used to Eudora, and who like to be alerted when they have new e-mail by a solid, in-your-face, you-can't-ignore-it message. BeMail has its status window, and Adam uses something similar, but BeatWare's Mail-It is a little different. Not having a status window like those two, you might think there's no easy way to get a system-wide alert that new e-mail has arrived. But there is!
