Mail Notification using Outlook Express

Is there a way to setup Outlook Express to notify you when you receive a message.  Presently I just check it ever so often.  I am using Win98 and Internet Exployer.

Yes there is, If you go to the control panel and then select sounds.  Scroll down the list until you see: new mail notification, and add a sound file to it.  Then whenever you get new mail the sound will go off.

After choosing the sound, do you have to open Outlook Express, then minimize to get the notification?  I have not been notified until I open Outlook Express.  When using Netscape, I was notified regardless what program I was in.

Yeah, I used Outlook for a month or so and it's seems to need to be open in order for it to check the mail.  I switched back to using Netscape.  Outlook hogged too much memory.
