I have several emails to track. One for yahoo, one for google, and many others. The problem with this is the tracking. It's a hassle because you have to check or refresh each emails every now and then. I was thinking it would be nice to have an application to just notify if any of my email address has a new message. I want to know what application in linux that does this?

Most mail applications can integrate using POP3 or IMAP with most major online mail providers.

... and can automatically check your accounts, and show notification of new mail. I assume that's what you meant :-). – sleske Feb 7 '11 at 10:20

Have you considered using gmail mail fetcher:
