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

This is an option. I like the visual indication as it tells me that Mail is actually checking for mail. Now, I don't know if it is checking or not. I am told if there is a connection problem or if mail is being fetched.
