Hi Folks,

I'm interested if there is an easy way to receive a temporary mini-message preview (containing sender name, subject and a few words from body of message) with Mac Mail? This is a feature I'm familiar with from using Outlook in XP at work and I've grown used to seeing a mini preview of messages "pop-up" in the corner of my screen for 3-5 seconds while I'm working and then's helpful not to have to leave an application to find out who just sent me a message. Any former/current Outlook users out there know what I'm talking about?

I poked around online today and found Google Notifier (I do use Gmail as my mail client), but it wasn't what I was looking for and wondered if there is some other setting or plug-in or peripheral that I don't see?

Thanks for any help you may provide.
