How can i change type of sound when an email arrives in Outlook XP?

At the moment i am Going: Tools---> Options---->Email Options
---->Advanced Email Options.

Can some help me on how to do this correctly.

The easiest way is to bring up the Control Panel and click on Sounds / Multimedia (Depending on your OS) and adjust the "New Mail Notification".

IIRC, both Outlook and Outlook Express use this sound :-)

control panel>audio and sound devices>sounds>Then scroll through the list of events untill you find new mail notification,click on it,then cycle through the available sounds in the sounds box.

If you wanted to use a custom sound i presume you could drop a wav of your choice into the directory that these are stoed in and select it in the same fashion.

I know at one time i was overtaken with boredom and changed all my system sounds to farts,thunder,gunshots,homer singing and toilets being flushed....
