    There are some individual apps in the market. If you do a search for "unread count" you'll find many of them.

    Launcher Pro includes this as a built-in feature for its dock icons which I find pretty convenient since I like and use Launcher Pro anyway.

    HTC Sense provides this functionality.

    Yeah, Handcent is great for getting texts to popup, and "gmail popup" will do the same thing for gmails (obviously). I think there's even an email popup that's designed to work with the K9 email program.
