Hi,  can you have an email notification on a second mailbox attached to your Outlook 2003?
The new email notification works on the primary mailbox.  But the user wants it to notify here when email is delivered to the second inbox.

"If you are using a Microsoft Exchange account or a POP3 (POP3: A common protocol that is used to retrieve e-mail messages from an Internet e-mail server.) e-mail account, a Desktop Alert is displayed only when a new item arrives in your default Inbox."
