    It is easy, just getting started is the trick. Click "Start" -"Settings" - "Control Panel" - "Sounds and MM" and scroll down to "New Mail Notification".

    Ack! Too many pop-up ads.

    In a quick check of the "Movie" wavs, they didn't seem to have the one that would make the most sense for my mailbox: "Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam..." <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    How about a variation on the Rice Bubbles ad "Snap! Crackle! Pop-Up!"?

    Re: 'Spam' for Email Arrival Alert (Outlook 2000

    There's a good quality Monty Python Spam selection here - although most of them are a bit long. (There's also an AOL take-off.)

    Perhaps this may fit the bill?

    No, thanks! I actually don't let Outlook check mail in the background, an old habit from OL97. So it was just a hypothetical statement. (If I did want a sound, I'm thinking there's a 4-note tune from either Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy that would be good. I can "hear" it, but I can't quite place it.)
