    If your phone has LED notification on it you should be able to set it to blink upon receiving an SMS or email message in the settings.
    If your phone has a multi-colored LED, you can set it up with the free 'Blink' app, in the Market, to show specific colors for specific message types and accounts.
    If your phone has no LED, you can set up the screen with the free 'No LED' app, also in the Market, to flash upon receipt of SMS or email messages.
    This last m.o. seems to require recharging a lot, I understand.
    I use the 'Blink' app.

    You might try NoLED. You can customize the icon colors, make them blink and set the time before they change position on the screen. Damn fine app, especially for free.

    NoLED - Android app on AppBrain

    I think in the settings of the SMS and email apps, (depending on your phone), you should be able to set the notification to vibrate.

    I use Handcent SMS which has a popup window, changes the LED to solid blue, and vibrates and I usually can feel that vibration anywhere in the room!

    I also use sms pop up on my stock desire using the HTC messaging app. If you are using the phone, it will pop up the sms message in a little window. Makes it difficult to miss even when playing games.

    The company who manufactures it is called Dreamzon.
