How can I add sound/chimes when emails arrive?

I'd love to be able to hear a chime or any noise telling me when each new email arrives. Any way to do that using email on Xfinity?

What device/email app are you using?  On my desktop, using Outlook, File->Options->Mail has the setting to choose shown below.

joev is correct.  The Comcast webmail has no provision for audible alerts.  But if you have the account enabled in a desktop client like Outlook or Thunderbird, or in the mail app on a mobile device you already have that ability.
