IBM's Lotus Notes has the ability to display a popup message when you receive new email. This method only works for email hosted on a Domino Server and uses AMAP Online Internet Mail. If you are not sure whether your email meets this criteria, check with your organization's system administrator.

Step 1

In Lotus Notes, select "Preferences" from the File menu.

Step 2

Expand the Mail option by clicking the "+" next to "Mail."

Step 3

Select "Check for New Mail Every X Minutes." Set the interval, in minutes, for Notes to check for new mail.

Step 4

Click "Display a Popup Alert" and click "OK."
