When I updated to Mail 6.2 with OS X 10.7, I noticed that there is no more indication that Mail is checking the POP server(s). I've looked to see if there is a Preference to have this displayed, but I can not find one. Is this normal behavior for Mail?

    In Mail>Preferences>General>check the box for "Play sounds for other Mail actions".  Then in System Preferences>Sound>Special Effects> turn up the Volume slider for "Alerts" all the way.  Then when Mail is done searching for downloads to your Pop accounts it will sound a "bing".



    Hope this helps
