Windows 7: System Tray Mail Notifier?

System Tray Mail Notifier?

OK, I'm sure you all have an answer to this one.

I would like a simple email notification device that sits in the System Tray and notifies me when I receive an email.

It must be configurable to work with IMAP protocol. In this case, MobileMe.

I have all my email addresses forwarded to my Apple MobileMe inbox. I use Thunderbird as my client on Windows. It has a system tray notifier but, Thunderbird must be running for it to work.

I know of things like GMail Notifier but, I need a generic one I can set up for whatever IMAP account I want.

I want it to look like it belongs in the Windows 7 system tray. I would like it to announce an email without Thunderbird running. I want to be able to click on it and have it launch Thunderbird.

Any suggestions?

I can get Pidgin to do the same thing but, I don't have my IM running all the time nor do I want to. A nice stand alone tool like Gmail Notifier is what I'm looking for but not specific to Gmail.
