    AOL webmail - no sound

    Hi - I get Windows system sounds but no "you've got mail" sounds. I have checked volume control; checked "Play A sound" in AOL Settings. When I click Preview, there is no sound. When I did an Internet search, all I found was - ta da - be sure volume is on. I thought this might have started when I downloaded Flashblock, but when I allowed AOL, still no sound. Any hints? Thank you. I realize I am probably the only Lounger to still use AOL...

    Thanks to your reply, I accessed AOL via IE, and, indeed, I did get "You've got mail." So it had to be something within Firefox, I figured. I disabled my most recent Add-on, Flashblock,and guess what? I now get the message. Thanks for leading me in the right direction.

    I still use AOL Mail, too. It's been working fine for me for years, and I haven't wanted to go through the process of notifying all of my contacts of a change. I also tend to be pretty loyal. So now there are at least 3 of us in the AOL club!
