    Audible "New email received" tone.


    I have a POP3 email address (Tiscali) I have set it up on "outlook"
    I can send and receive Emails ok but cannot find an option to get a tone to sound when a new Email arrives.
    I have looked at the Laptop's "Sounds" and found that the 2 items referring to Email Notifications are both set to use the Default sound. My volumn is turned fully up. Sounds from Iplayer are ok.
    I have Goggled for a solution but the methods suggested cannot work because the options are not viable.
    Any Suggestions?
