I have recently got a cable modem hooked up and one of the reasons was so I was online all the time and I would know the instant I had email. The only problem is that when I get email it is just a little icon down in the bottom right corner. I would like an alert that fills the whole screen when email comes in. Does anybody know where I can get something like this. Thanks

I'm looking at OE6 right now but should be similar. Tools>Options, General tab - do you see the option to Play Sound when new message arrive? You'd need to have your speakers on.
Outlook has the option to pop up a message but OE doesn't.

You also need to go into the control panel/ sounds and set up the sound for the email.
