Why no new mail sound for Outlook 2007?

I can't seem to get Outlook 2007 to make the new mail sound even though I have the "play sound" box checked, and I have a custom .wav file selection in the Sounds/Control Panel for New Mail Notification.  There are no issues with the sound, speakers.  the sound plays fine when I test it in the Sounds setup, but when a new mail message comes in, no sound....

1. Start regedit.exe
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\MailBeep\.current.
3. Double-click (Default), and set its value to the WAV file to play.
4. Click OK.
5. Close regedit.
6. Restart
