Outlook 2002 Rule to play sound clip when e-mail arrives

I've setup a rule in outlook but it doesn't seem to work. Basically, each time i receive an e-mail from a certain domain name (xxxx@domain.com), i want it to play a WAV file that i specified.  Seems simple enough following the rules wizard however it doesn't work.  it does play the file if i say i want to manually execute the rule NOW but that's it.  The rule is as follows:

Apply this rule after the message arrives
with domain.com in the sender's address
play xxx.WAV

That's exactly how it reads except for the actual domain & wav file name. The rule is applied to the InBox for all my outlook e-mail accounts & is checked to run & it's the only rule i have.  

Any ideas?

Hiya

Not sure, but most emails that are received have a wav sound file as notification. Have you tried removing the wav file for all Notifications? It may be conflicting.

Control Panel | Sounds. Look for New Mail Notification. Click on it, go to None, apply and OK

Does it work now?

Good idea.  I've disabled the sound from Ctrl Panel, added a 2nd rule to play the normal NOTIFY.WAV file for all regular e-mail arrivals.  That should support both sound clips now.

Now to test...
