As my question stated, I have already searched in the Sounds & Audio Devices settings in my Control Panel.

I think I actually figured it out. It looks like my Cisco Viewmail (Outlook Add-in) took control of the sounds for this type of email. Viewmail has options to turn on\off the sound notification. Still not sure where the setting is located if you don't have Viewmail installed?!?

Now I just have to figure out how to close out this question. Maybe I could give you 50 points if you could tell me that.

Neh, just close it and get the 50 back (or let it be deleted).... Sometimes Microsoft likes to fool us around and keep us busy by switching all things to all different places and make sure to not tell anybody, keeps you searching.. ;)

Just go to the Support area (top left corner) and post a delete and refund questions with a link to this questions and you will get your points back...
