Email tell-tale required

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use evolution and receive an email.
An email tell-tale would be really good for Evolution. This would
appear/signal/flag/ & perhaps beep when email arrives. I am using imap so it
would be good if it worked for both imap and pop.
Priority should be "Enhancement."
Reason I say this is that there are already tools on your Red Hat Linux box that
provides this feature. If you are using Gnome 2 as your desktop environment,
you can opt to use the "Inbox Monitor" applet to add to your panel wherever you
wish. Inbox Monitor is compatible with local mail spools, POP3, and IMAP. You
can find the applet via:
1. Right-click on an empty spot of your Gnome Panel.
2. Select "Add to Panel"
3. Select "Internet"
4. Select "Inbox Monitor"
You should see the applet appear somewhere on your Gnome Panel. Right click on
the applet's face and select "Preferences" to configure and setup the applet.
There is support for doing this sort of thing in evolution 1.2, which is
currently available in rawhide.
