Is there something that I can activate that will tell me I have a new email? Maybe a sound?

Re: email notification

The old email format has a sound alert feature, but you have to have a certain software program on your computer to use it, and it has never been an overly popular option.  The new format has no provision for any sound alerts.  However, if you use a desktop email client like Thunderbird, Mac Mail or some other, those have that feature.  If you are using a mobile device, some of the mail apps available for them have it.  I can't think of any webmail program that has sound alerts.
