Need e-mail program with audible alert

by bporeporter / May 25, 2013 9:53 AM PDT

I used to use messenger to notify me when a new email came in. Now that messenger has been replaced by skype, I am looking for an email program that will watch for new messages in my hotmail account and notify me with an audible alert immediately upon their arrival.
