Why don't you try a separate program designed for this task
(specto, a plugin for your mail-reader, cgmail, gnubiff, kbiff,

search mail notification' should give you possibilities enough.

I think it gives IM-notifications using the mumbles daemon. It's
something growl-like [1]. I don't think it's what you're looking for.
