    New Mail Sound (Outlook 2002 SP-2)

    Is there a way to change the sound played when new mail arrives? I could do it in Outlook 2000 but don't see a way to do it in XP.

    TIA

    In Windows XP Professional, I hink you change it through the Windows "Sounds" control panel. Or maybe this is only for Outlook Express???

    Yes, that's how you change the sounds. The WAV files are stored in the WindowsMedia folder, and you can add any WAV file and use it for your sounds. I liked the old NOTIFY.WAV, and copied that and use it.
