Hi,

When using outlook does anyone know how to change the default wave file that sounds when I (the user) gets mail?
For instance a friends computer gives the greeting

               "You have mail"

When He gets e-mail - He doesent know how this happens He said it was on the computer when He bought it?  Is there a program that can be downloaded for this purpose?

Regards

Mark

Assuming it's a Windows Computer, you can change that in the Control Panel, under the Sounds control. Scroll down until you find the new mail event, and then you can browse to any .wav file you want to use.
