    i know they have this for outlook (windoze, ack, LOL) and for GMail on mac i think.. when U get a new mail you get a transluscent box that pops up with like sender and subject.. do they have this for OSX Leopard.. i looked at some addons but they were all for lower versions of OSX :( or you need a degree in rocket science to install.. does anyone know of any for OSX Leo?

    (i use the mail app and me.com mail)

    You can use Growl Mail which comes with Growl when you download it.

    Are you talking about something like this?

    If so, check out GrowlMail...they're a little slow with updating the extension for OS X updates. And I don't remember the installation to be all that tricky.

    Pretty sure Postbox, Sparrow, and Thunderbird offer this functionality out of the box.

    I never much liked Growlmail, although I do use Growl notification for other apps.

    I was using Mail.Appetizer for a long while but then switched to Herald, which I think is awesome.

    Go to system preferences and see if Growl is listed near the bottom under "other." Growl mail is an add on to the free Growl app, so you need to install both.

    Growl is awesome, btw. I use it with about 15 programs and makes life so much easier.
