    Play sound when msg arrives

    OE 5.5. Even though the "play sound when messages arrives" option is checked under Options|General, no sound is played. I hear other sounds from other applications, but not from OE. Thought maybe a sound file was missing, but I haven't a clue where to look for the sound file it might want. Anybody experience this?

    Have you checked under Control Panel/Sounds & Multimedia:-
    There is a setting for 'New Mail Notification' with a Play/Preview button - does that work?

    Thanks again, Leif! I had checked that possibility before and it didn't solve the problem. So I tried it again, this time it worked. One of Windows' little mysteries.
