It's poddible to get it to play a sound - look in Tools/Options.

If you set it to check every X minutes then it will do just that and you do not have to do anything else.

Wonderful this broadband malarky, isn't it!

I think if OE is open and mimimised it will check for mail as set up and any new mail will show up as an envelope in the system tray.

I have also set mine up to play sound as well.

In IE go to tools >options >general tab and check the box. If you don't want the windows default sound go to Control Panel >sound and audio devices> sounds tab select the program event "new mail notification" nad then browse to the sound you want.
