Re: E mail alrets notifications sound

Are you still on the old email format?  If so it does have that capability, but you have to have either Quick Time or Windows Media Player on your machine.  Do you have either one?  Also, once you are migrated to the new format, there is no alert capability in it.

Thanks for your reply,

 

I belive I do have a flash media player I am not sure if its being setup correctly, but I don't have a Quick player, do you think If I install a quick player will solve the issue!.

I really can't say for sure, as I've never tried it myself.  It might.  After you are migrated, if you enable the account in a desktop client like Outlook or Thuderbird,  you can use the sound feature in that.  I use Mac Mail and it has that ability.
