I have this in the beginning of my .procmailrc:

:0 c
| ratpoison -c 'echo New mail.' 2>&1 > /dev/null && true

The advantages of this is that I that I see that I have new mail
as soon at is arrives, and that it works even if the mail is
delivered to some other mailbox than the main spool (without
having to grep through 30MB of mail).
