how can i set up an email alert?

I would like to hear a sound(email alert) when I receive a new email.


Re: how can i set up an email alert?

It depends on how you are accessing the email.  If you are using only the webmail interface in a browser, only the old format has this ability.  It does not seem to have been a very popular item though since it only worked with a particular sound program.  The new format has no provision for sound alerts. However, most desktop email clients have it, as do most mail apps on mobile devices.
