I just installed the latest Beta 1 Desktop client on my OpenSuSE 10.3 desktop, and I'm impressed. I had problems even getting the earlier versions to install on my Linux machine, but played with them on Windows. I have to say I'm very impressed with the progress on the client... VERY NICE!

Are there any plans to incorporate any type of audible alert sound option when I new email arrives. I will kind of miss if I abandon my Thunderbird client. It's kind of nice when I'm away from my desk, and I receive a new email I can here the audible alert from the client. Just a suggestion.
