I have 1 POP3 mail account and 1 Unix Movemail account configured.
When my POP3 account receives a new e-mail, a notification dialog pops up in my KDE tray below.
However, when my Unix Movemail account receives a new e-mail, no notification popup is shown.

Moved to Thunderbird Support. I don't see any bug report pending on this issue.

In Edit > Account Settings > (account) > Server Settings, are both "Check for new messages as startup" and "Check for new messages every [__] minutes" options checked? If not, new messages are never checked for automatically.

Also, when new messages arrive, do you see the respective Inbox folder becoming bold and the new-message count increasing? If not, it's a problem with checking for new mail at all; if yes, it's a problem with raising the alert for this specific account.

Both options are checked.
The new messages are also shown in the inbox folder and are shown bold.
The new-message count is also increasing.
Everything works as it should be, except for the notification popup.

Can you file a formal bug report at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ to get this to the attention of the developers? Since Movemail isn't widely used any more, something might have been missed when adding new features or making modifications to the notification system.

For anyone following this topic, that's bug 898885 and should be related to bug 270186 which gjacques found.
