My Korn and Kbiff work, but neither do what I want.
I liked it when OutLook would insert a tray icon when new mail arrived. It
made things easy. With Korn/Kbiff I would have to disable interval checking
in Kmail and check manually when either app notifies me I have mail. That's
an extra step that shouldn't exist.
I just leave kmail running all the time and check it periodically now. It
works okay. I decided I didn't want it beep everytime new mail arrives, I'd
perfer a visual cue, but none are available that are unintrusive while I'm
working. (That's why OutLook's tray icon worked so well.)
