• Subject: object lock on user message queue

I'm using Client Access V3R1M3.  I usually run three display sessions.  When
messages are sent to my user message queue, the message indicator at the bottom
of the screen only appears for the display station that has the lock on the
message queue, typcially the first session signed on to.  So, if I'm working on
the third session and a message gets sent to me, I'll never see it until I
happen to go back to the first session.

I thought I remembered (from a few years ago at a different location) seeing a
flashing message indicator in the Windows task bar when a message was sent to my
user message queue.  This might not have been Client Access; maybe Netsoft.
Anybody know what I'm talking about?  Or how to set it up for Client Access?

The other possibility is to have _each_ display session flash the message
indicator at the bottom of the screen.  I think I saw a solution for this
several years ago.  It involved changing the lock on the message queue object.
Anybody know?
