This is documented in the GNOME 2.10 release notes. I'm now using
mail/mail-notification as a replacement, but it is not as real-time as
the applet used to be.

It's a purple icon next to the flashing monitors.

I just create custom drawers, and that works fine in GNOME 2.10.

Check your gstreamer audio settings. Alternatively, you could recompile
totem with libxine support if it works better for you.
