I don't use OE Mar 4, 2005

but Eudora, it nicely reads me aloud every incoming message sender and Subj., really helpful, even if at the moment I'm at the coffee machine, some distance away from the screen.

In Eudora it is done via filters- you create filter to message incoming to your particular mailbox and then via drop-down menus add other options. I do not know anything about OE, but can only suppose it is constructed likewise.

Control Panel Mar 4, 2005

You have to set up a sound in the Windows Control Panel. I don't know how the setting called exactly (M$ likes to change the names of these features a lot), but it should be something like "Sounds and Multimedia"->Sounds.

HTH,

all this is done Mar 5, 2005

All this is done - New mail notification is selected, not no sound of incoming mail is heard. On the other hand, I do not have problems with the sond card and all other sounds and music files are played successfully.

I just cannot guess where can be the problem. Any suggestions?

I use Outlook EXPRESS, not just Outlook.... Mar 5, 2005

So the path to make sound is different than this which you say, just as I have described above.

"Just" Outlook is the full version of Outlook Express Mar 5, 2005

but nevertheless, you might be interested in reading this article.

Microsoft Knowledge Base is allways a good address to start with.

I made it beeping, but... Mar 5, 2005

... I am exclusively unhappy about the way I did it. I did this according the acticlel recommended above, and there they say to put in the Windows register the name of the .WAV file, which one wants to use. As a result, one cannot change this sound form proper place, namely: Start> Settings> Control Panel> Sound and Audio Devices>Sounds>New Mail.

Outlook is a part of Microsoft Office Mar 5, 2005

Furthermore you can buy Outlook alone by any software reseller.
Outlook Express is a free companion of Microsoft Explorer.
