Best e-mail provider that notifies when new email arrives

I have had a Hotmail account for over 10 years but I think someone has hacked into the account and I cannot get in now.

I have set up a gmail account temporarily but what I liked about hotmail was if I had the windows live messenger open I knew as soon as a new email arrived which is important for my work.

Can anyone recommend another safe email provider that notifies you when a new email arrives?

As per Nontek - have used Incredimail (paid for version) since 2005. GMX is one that has a notifier in the settings and is FREE - I am also signed up to this and would recommend enter link description here

I have just had a tech guy out to see if he could access my Hotmail account, he could not do anymore than I had already done.

He had been called out a lot recently where people had email accounts hacked and thinks it is often spam bots where they want to use email accounts to send spam from. So most free accounts are susceptible.

He suggested I pay a to upgrade and use a different domain, apparently gmail does let you choose what goes after the @.

Hotmail has an ad free version but it does not look like you can change the domain. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/hotmail/ad-free-hotmail-and-outlook

So can anyone recommend an email provider that lets you choose the domain and provides support if there is a problem for a small yearly fee?

You could try http://www.1&1.co.uk , and by doing so, you should be able to have an email box and domain of your choosing, if the domain is available.

Something wrong with the above link, try http://www.1and1.co.uk

If that solution doesn't help, then there are a number of other suggestions for email accounts.
