Does anyone know how to get some kind of notification icon in the menu bar so i don't always have to check to see if there is a little red dot on the mail icon when new mail arrives?

I use GrowlMail which has a small pop-up on the desktop with a summary of the new mail.. which fades away after a few seconds if you are active on the computer... or remains on the desktop until clicked if you are in active.

It has a lot of user-defined options such as Appearance, time on desktop, location, etc... It's fantastic.

GROWLMAIL

I use this app. VERY useful, heaps of options. It'll display the incoming message over other apps, with little buttons down the bottom, to display message, delete it, close window, and also to mark as read, I think. It's great if you've got a lot on at once, and allows you to decide whether the mail is important enough to look at at the time. It runs as part of Mail, so its preferences are located there, and no need to launch it separately.
