Incoming mail message

Hi folks, My wife uses windows mail and i use MS outlook. Is there a way to set these up for different incoming mail alerts. I.E different .WAV files.

Haven't used either in awhile, but I am sure if you go into the general settings, there should be a section for sound. And then just pick your sound file.

Change the New Mail Sound in Outlook, Windows Mail and Outlook Express

To use a custom sound when new mail comes in with Outlook and Outlook Express:

  • Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
  • Make sure you are in Classic View.
  • Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices.
  • Go to the Sounds tab.
  • Highlight New Mail Notification in the Program Events list.
  • Select a sound from the Sounds list, or use the Browse button to find a sound not in the list.
  • Click OK.
brocher, you can't. There is only one mail notificaiton sound in windows.

BUT you can set up 2 different login used id's and each user gets to pick their own mail notifiation.
I was thinking that but haven't messed about with it for ages, was just wondering if things had changed over the years.
Thanks for your input lads.
