I recently started using Microsoft Outlook email. I have windows xp professional. I have only received the sound and desktop alert for new email a very few times. I have the boxes checked to play a sound and have the desktop alert for new email. I don't think anything has been changed from when it did work (however briefly) to when it now does not. Other sounds on the computer work ok. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

What email client do you use? Do you use Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail ?? If you use something like Yahoo you need to pay to access your email through Outlook Express. Gmail of course is free.
