Adding Favorites to the Stack Exchange global inbox

There was a feature previously in SE sites which used to show the "envelope" in yellow color whenever there is any update for the questions marked as favorite. Since the envelope is no more available on SE sites, where can I find that functionality now in new SE layout?

In short: How will I know if any of my favorite questions have had any updates?

@Gunner - yes. I saw your post too. Somehow co-incidently, it seems that our questions were posted at exactly same time with difference in probably miliseconds. ;) – Sachin Shanbhag Mar 16 '11 at 11:39
Telepathy maybe.. but the real reason is it's an useful feature that everyone would want. – Shamim Hafiz Mar 16 '11 at 11:42
@Gunner - Agreed. Definitely with you on this. – Sachin Shanbhag Mar 16 '11 at 11:43
This is one of the things I requested/asked here: Can more of the functionality of the old envelope be added to the new drop-down menu? – Hendrik Vogt Mar 16 '11 at 12:09

There is a Stackexchange button and it has a inbox. Wish that has updates on favourite questions too.

Should be in a different tab, though. – Hendrik Vogt Jul 15 '11 at 7:24
