Hello Expert,

I am using Microsoft Outlook Express to send / received emails. Its working fine, the only problem is i can see whether i have got new emails or not by click the button
Send / Recv. This means that if i dont click this button, i dont know about new emails.
Is there any way that as soon as i got a new email, it should prompt me that u have got a new email,
TIA,

Greetings, i_m_aamir !

Select the options in in Outlook Express option menu, Go to Tools > Options > General tab. Check "Play sound when new message arrives". Check "Send and receive messages at startup".  Check "Check for message every x minules". Fill in the x.  Click OK. Restart OE.

Best wishes!
