Re: New Mail notification Sound Issue

Oh my goodness such a simple little thing. I'd been in there tons of times and never caught sight as it were of that distinction.
thanks oodles and bunches for pointing that out to us.
I for one appreciate it as this has been driving me crazy for an age.

There are two events in the sound scheme treeview. One is labeled
"New Mail Notification"
which is the event responsible for incoming mail in earlier versions of
Windows. However, in Windows 10 there is also another event labeled
"Desktop Mail Notification"
This is the one I had to modify to change the default mail sound for Outlook
Express. I don't know if the same event will work for Outlook, Windows Live
Mail, or other mail clients, but you can give it a try and report back.

Subject: [TechTalk] New Mail notification Sound Issue

I have been attempting to modify my Windows 10 sound theme. However, after
changing the New Mail notification sound in Windows 10 I am not receiving
any sound notifications when new messages arrive in Outlook 2016. I am not
the only one with this issue. Some users of WLM are also having this issue.
I have googled the problem and tried the suggested solution whereby I made
sure that sounds were toggled on in my settings for Outlook 2016. Any other
suggestions for changing the default new mail notification sound from the
default in windows 10 are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
