    I use Yahoo Widget Engine (formarly known as Konfabulator) and a widget called Yahoo Mail Checker. It puts a widget on my desktop that checks my email every ten minutes or so.

    I also use Firefox, and have the extension Yahoo Mail Notifier. When I get an email, a small window pops up in the corner of my browser (along with a chime) to let me know.

    If you use Gmail, then get the extension Gmail Manager.

    Oh, to get the Yahoo Widget Engine:

    Lots more widgets than just an email checker.

    Yahoo Mail Notifier (for Firefox):
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1264/

    Gmail Manager (for Firefox):
    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1320/
