With all respect, it seems a redundant request since almost all desktop
managers offer multiple desktops.  I simply dedicate one desktop to a
fully maximised evolution and run all my other apps in one of any of the
remaining ones (I run 8 in total).  Works very well for me - and others,
from what I hear on lists :-)

It's not productive to keep switching to another desktop to see if you have new

Fair enough, if that's your preference.  Personally, I couldn't disagree
more and find it is NOT productive to get notice of new mail every time
one comes.  I get around a 100-300 emails a day, some very critical to
my business but most mailing list traffic.  I find no trouble jumping
between desktops to check my mail when my time and inclination permits.
Anymore than this and I'd be distracted and go crazy :-)

And because of filtering, all you have to do is bounce over and 
glance at the folder list and see if there are any new emails in
the business-related folders.

A plugin that pings when new emails arrive in *specified* folders
would be useful, though.
