As far as I know FileMaker doesn't have a notification feature like the you are looking for.
You might be able to set something up by adding a table that links by a user ID and have the sender. Feats a record in the table with the recipients ID. The have an Ontimer script trigger look for records with the users ID. When it finds one open a pop up window with the notification.
Your scripting will have to delete the record or mark it read so it doesn't come up more then once.
Along the lines of 3rd party software, have a look at 2 plugins that may fit the bill. There may be others that are similar, but I am only aware is these two.

We purchased the Pro version of FMMessenger and it is flakey at best. There are several issues in the Pro version that were not in the demo we tried. Still awaiting a reply from FMWebSchool to hopefully address the issue. Just thought i would share our experience with it.
Thanks for the update. The idea seemed great and I wish you a timely and effective response.
