    I know that a lot of us would like the ipod touch to play a sound (externally) when a new email is received.

    Has anybody made any progress on this?

    If not, would it not be possible to create a program that, upon receiving a new email, actually created a new calendar event for just in the future, so that a minute later or so it would beep for a new event that would say "New Email Received" or something?

    Hmm, I've got a program on mine (Taskbar Notifier or something like that) that plays a sound when an email is received. I wonder how much modification it would take for it to play it through the beeper/ speaker thing.

    maybe even just use that 'clicker' sound used when scrolling.

    I really like that idea too and would like that on my iPod for email and aim. I have no idea to make programs so I dont have much input except for telling you its a good concept and can definately be done by the right person. Common someone jump on this, I'm sure there are many other people who want this feature too.

    I dont think this would be too hard. Just replace the red icon notification, with one of the alarm sounds

    the 1.1.3 mail makes one of those useless "buzz" sounds, and if you are listening to music, a tone is played when new mail comes in.

    You mean the little bubble that pops up and tells you how many emails you missed?
