ttoulis,
To begin with, you need to decide which WAV file you'd prefer to use.
Then it's a simple matter of entering control panel, click on sounds, scroll down the list and click on new mail notification, then browse to the desired file.  I use a file named ringin.wav (which sounds like a phone ringing) to alert me when I receive e-mail.
Hope this helps,
Ralph

P.S. Check your CAPS LOCK key!

rmarotta - The "ring-in" sound was right there in "Sounds" under "Net-Meeting" and I installed it as New Mail Notification" - I sent myself a couple of EMAILS and sure enough the long ring worked when I rx'ed EMAIL and was loud and long enough to get my attention!  Thank you for your swift response!

ttoulis,
I'm glad to help.
Did the "phone" ring when you got this?
Enjoy!
