Just a bit of fun:

#!/bin/bash

base=~/Maildir/nottingham/INBOX/new
inotifywait -m $base -e create -e moved_to |
    while read path action file; do
    from=$(grep ^From: "$base/$file" \
         | head -n1 \
         | cut -d':' -f2 \
         | cut -d'<' -f1)
    echo "You have an email from $from" | espeak
    done
