New email alert

Is there not a way in the new email platform to set a visual or audio alert to let you know when you receive new mail?  In the old format, you could set both visual and audio alerts.  My job requires that I receive many emails daily since I train new employees, and I find having an email alert very valuable.  Without this, I will constantly have to stop what I'm doing and look at my inbox to see if there is anything that needs immediate attention.  I have searched everything I can find on the new email format and don't see any type of alert setting.  

 

I would be appreciative of any help with this.  

 

Thanks.

The new format has no provision for alerts.  But your mobile device should have that as an option in the mail app that comes on it.  If you are using a laptop, you can use a desktop email client like Thunderbird or Outlook.  Those also have alert capabilities.

The new format has no provision for alerts.  Hmmm, I have not seen anything improved in the format and lost what I liked about the old format.  Thanks Comcast! :-(
