"YOU HAVE MAIL -- ALERT"

I use BT Yahoo email.  When new mail arrives there is no automatic flag to tell you something has arrived.  This means we have to check our mail frequently.  Does anyone know if this can be tweaked to give a "ding" or sumfink, when mail arrives?  Are there bolt-ons to do this or can BT Yahoo put more code in the sortware?

Hi, To get that sort of notification you need to be using an email client such as Thunderbird. It's free and not difficult to set up.

Thanks for your help. Will it mean I have to change my email addy if I start to use Thunderbird?

No, it can be the same. You have a choice of POP 3 or IMAP. Google it before you decide.
