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.)
