In outlook 97 there is an option in the 'Options' / 'E-Mail' Tab.
When New Items Arrive, tick the 'Play a sound' check box.

That will play the 'New Mail Notification' sound in Windows.  (To change this, you have to go to Control Panel, Sounds and change the New Mail Notification sound there.

Hope this helps you.

the options for setting the sound works fine, but only for the
first e-mail that comes in, if any more e-mail comes in, the
notification does not sound.   The only way it will sound again
is if you go back into the Control Panel,Sound and Change the
New Mail Notification sound.  Any suggestions

thank-you
