The Messages tab contains various options for customizing Message settings.

The Message Notification options can alert you whenever a new message arrives in your Inbox.  The way the flash notification works depends on whether you are running PhonePad as a standard Windows application or as a system tray application.  If you are running PhonePad as a standard Windows application, the icon on the taskbar will flash until you restore the application window (ie. un-minimise it).  If you are running PhonePad as a system tray application, the color of the PhonePad icon in the system tray will cycle between blue, red and yellow.

The Notification Sound option allows you to specify a sound to play when new messages are received.  This is only enabled if the Beep When Messages Received option is enabled.  For more information, refer to Using Notification Sounds.
