Ok - so is there a simple way of setting an alert somewhere on the desktop
for a user of ms mail when there is an incoming mail other than a "sound"
which I have already set up? (ps. I am very hard of hearing!)

That is the Quick Launch bar. As far as I know, there is no way
to have that icon alert for new incoming mail.
I don't use the Windows Sidebar. I know all kinds of 'gadgets'
have been developed for it, but I'm not familiar with those.
