Outlook Express Sounds

How can I "use" a new sound (audio file) to alert me to a new message?  For example, an "opening door" instead of the silly little "ding" that sounds now???  Thanks, Ken

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
