Windows 7: Mail Gadget for POP3 Mail and MS Outlook

Mail Gadget for POP3 Mail and MS Outlook

Hello people. I'm trying to find this and I can't. I think I found the end of Google in search for this
My one computer is running Windows 7. My mail is Verizon Mail, meaning its POP-3, meaning I have my Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 set up with it. Before my upgrade to Win 7, I had Win Vista. And I had a sidebar gadget that monitored my incoming server for new mail. This program would make a sound notification (I supplied the *.wav file for it to use), and it would pop up on my taskbar and/or somewhere on my desktop. The point of that gadget was to inform/notify me of new e-mails. And when that notification went off (visual), I would click on it and it would open my default mail client up. I'm looking for the same sort of a gadget for Windows's 7 sidebar. Does anybody have any recommendations for me? Thank You!!

This is what I had for Windows Vista.

I want the same exact thing but for Windows 7, at least same features and maybe more, but not less.

Thank You Folks

Hi,

For a long time I've used the gadget pack from Gersma on DeviantArt:

Chameleon Glass by ~gersma on deviantART

It has a mail gadget wich I think will work with any pop3 account and Windows 7
You can change the notification sound and click on it to open your mail client.

Hi. Thank You for that, but as I understand this is a whole new program just like "Windows Sidebar". I want a SIMPLE gadget for my "already there!" Windows Sidebar. But very thank you!!

Have you tried installing your Vista mail gadget in compatability mode for Vista in Windows 7 ?

Yes, it is a collection of stand alone gadgets. Glass means see through, you can right click and set transparency, as with any gadgets. Watch the vid:

As A Guy says, they are stand alone gadgets, just watch the vid.
You can download the pack at the link I gave you (it's a .RAR file)
You can unrar it (like zip files) with a free program called 7zip,
and just only install the mail gadget in the pack.
