In the spirit of this question: Is there an applet that will notify me of new messages in an IMAP mail account. (NOT a Gmail account)

Use CloudSN (Cloud Services Notification). It supports gmail, google reader, pop3, imap, twitter, identi.ca

http://chuchiperriman.github.com/cloud-services-notifications/ (PPA available)

The best part is that it supports multiple accounts and notify-osd.

It is not a real gnome applet per se, but you can use gnubiff, it sits near the clock, in the notification/indicator applet:

gnubiff checks for mail within a file, a qmail or MH style dir, or an IMAP4 or POP3 or APOP server. It can display headers (number, sender, subject, and date) when new mail has arrived. While gnubiff is implemented as a GNOME panel applet, it also runs as an independent icon on the desktop in other environments.
