Dear experts:

I wonder whether there is a way to increase the volume of  MS Outlook 2007 reminder sound.

By-default volume is so low that I often miss it.

Thanks a lot!

    FYI, the volume is set at top at Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices.
    In addition, the volume of sound at an external speaker is set at pretty high, though not at top.

    Other than increasing th volume in Control Panel->Sounds (or with the speaker options in the notification area), ot by turning up the volume on the speakers themselves there is not much you can do.

    Another idea would to find a different sound to play that is louder and will get your attention.
    Good luck.
