Play sound?

I'm disabled and must use a voice-recognition program, DragonDictate, which is very particular about what audio files it will play.  It won't play the "play sound" when mail arrives in outlook express 5.  What I usually do on programs when Dragon won't let a sound be played is replace that wav with one that does play, renaming it the same name as the original file.  But I can't find the sound file in my outlook folder in the program files directory.  Can you tell me what sound file outlook plays and where it can be found?
Thanks

By default it is C:\WIndows\Media\Ding.wav

However, it will use whatever WAV file is set as the Windows "Default sound". You can find which WAV file this option is set to by looking in Control Panel >> Sounds

Good luck,

Oh, and you can of course just change the "Default sound" in Control Panel to a WAV you know works with your DragonDictate :-)
