I was searching for a way to put a Windows 8 mail notifier in my taskbar on the classic desktop and have, so far, been unsuccessful. Mail gives me real time notifications when I receive messages, but if I'm away from the computer when the messages come in, and do not visit the live tile screen (I spend most of my time on the classic desktop) I have no idea if there are messages waiting for me.

Anyone have a solution for this? Third party solutions would be perfectly acceptable as long as they accomplish the task.
