    Sorry about that, forgot to mention the most important piece of information.
    The answer is Microsoft Outlook 2007

    I think you'll find it in Control Panel.
    • In Control Panel, go to "Sounds" (Or bring up the Settings search with WindowsKey-W and search for Sounds that way).
    • Then in the dialog box select the "Sounds" tab.
    • In this tab there's a box called "Program Events" with a list of events
    • In the list there are a couple of possibles it may be - there's a "Desktop Mail Notification" and "New Mail Notification" (and possibly more). However you should be able to change it by finding an item here I think.
