Notification Sound with New Email

Notification Sound with New Email

Hi.

Am I missing some simple setting or is there no way to have a notification sound play when a new email arrives?  This was a convenient feature in the older system, and it seems unavailable to me.

Re: Notification Sound with New Email

The new format does not have that feature.  You would need to enable the account in a desktop client like Thunderbird, Mac Mail or some other that supports it.  If you are using a tablet or smartphone to access your email, whatever mail app is on it might also have it.

Thanks.

I don't like the way they change features that didn't need changing.  I'll set up my account in Outlook.
