You do realize that you have sent the same email four times now?

I think you can get audio/popup by using system notifications combined with 
ksysguard but I haven't quite figured out how it is supposed to work. I also 
think this is new to KDE 3.5 and the OP was using KDE 3.3 so I don't think 
the OP can use this without upgrading. Not sure though.
