I am not using this feature only due to its limited functionality.  Please upgrade the way new mail notifies users, especially the way the pop-ups work.  I hate to say it, but Outlook came up with this design back in 2003's (maybe earlier) but something similar to that would be nice.  Something that Notes clients already have (in R8+), like the Sametime Announcements, that come up from the bottom right with some info, and go away without taking any focus away from the user’s desktop. Any takers?This maybe already listed as an idea, but I can't find it anywhere.

Yes! We're moving people from Outlook to Notes and that is a complaint I've heard (and had myself as well). Show me the sender and title of the message or "4 new messages" and then go away automatically. Don't make me reply to a dialog.

I hate mail popups. They are distracting. I would not use this feature.

That said, others use it, and it would greatly improve the perception of Notes, so I vote yes.

As much as I don't use this "feature", I do agree that for those who feel the need to live in their mail file, and must know the second something new comes in, the alert isn't so great.

Looks like this will finally be introduced in 8.5.3.
