When new mail arrives, please have a modern and useful taskbar pop-up option

When using the full 8.x client, we already have a "lotus" icon always sitting in the taskbar. Please have that icon present the user with an intuitive and useful new mail popup. (see screenshot)

I love ideas where people go to all the effort to visually display how it should work. A picture is truly worth 1,000 words.

@1 I'm not sure "ruthlessly stitch together from images.google.com" counts. 8-)

And it should be semi-transparent and gracefully fade away if we don't click on it

Would be sooooo much better than the current messagebox!

Off course also use this for notifying a user that a meeting is about to begin, etc.

Would love it if you could also use this notification mechanism for custom apps, like a task has been assigned to you.

Should be hard to miss, but easy to ignore ;-)
