gkrellm might be an option. It supports checking all kind of mailboxes.

Thanx Alex...that works..
it would be better if i could have something in my panel..i have selected the stay on top option...so it stays above other windows i cannot have it in the panel..there used to be some kind of notifier in fedora3 that stayed in the panel..i really liked that..anyway..this solves my problem..
