Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Email sound alert

\015 How do I set my PC to alert me that there is an email that just came in while I am browsing another site. Thank you.\015

Answers :

That would be an option in your Email program. I am not familiar with Mac Setting but in Windows if you are using Outlook or Outlook Express there is a setting under Preferences in the drop down menu that allows you to have the computer play a sound when mail is received. If you are using a Web Based email service I am not sure you can do this. I know hotmail does not offer that option and I don't believe Yahoo does. The problem you will have if you are using Outlook or Outlook express is it only works if you are on a network. If your are using them through an ISP to access your email they only check to see if you have mail when you click the Send/Receive button. You can set Outlook to do this automatically based on time but that may degrade system performance.
