    I'm trying to find out if there is a way to run Outlook in taskbar so that it can notify me if I have mail or not. Anyone know if this is possible to do on XP Pro?

    Also, is there a way to change the default sound of email alerts?

    to change the sound of new messages:

    control panel->sounds and audio devices-> sounds tab

    scroll down till you see new mail notification, select it and hit the browse button. Then find the wav file that you want to replace it with on your hard drive and click ok

    that program is gives a popup when you boot asking you to buy...its very annoying

    if you want to be able to send any program to the tray, go to cnet and search for traymin....its freeware

    the tweak xp method should work too if you only want to do it with outlook....or you can tweak the registry yourself. Find out how here
