Happy to offer any advice, just PM me.

Secret ingredient, do you mean the plug-ins? Not tried them, but just get a dedicated email client mate <ok> Most will give you notifications in the systray

Thunderbird works well enough, though lacks many functions.

^^ Just for personal email though

I'm going to be looking at building myself another system, I'm interested in seeing what you guys would say to be the best processor & motherboard bearing in mind I have an overall budget of around £1300 for the whole lot (including sound & graphics cards but excluding monitor or other peripherals). Would be a big help <ok>.
