Microsoft Outlook 2010 Sound for Empty Folder for Deleted Items

Hi, Can anyone tell me how I can get a sound for Empty Folder for Deleted Items?

I am sure I had a sound and now I don't.

Thank you.

See if the the sound for Recycle Bin has been disabled

Click on the start button
Inside type mmsys.cpl and press the Enter key.
In the window that appears, go to the Sounds tab.
In the Program list search for "Empty recycle bin" and select it

See if the drop down menu isn't showing (none)

Read it wrong

I don't think Microsoft Office uses the Recycle Bin sound for its own Delete sound. I mean, I have Office 2003 and I had to download an Office Sounds pack in order to get sounds in Office. Until doing that, I had no sound.

Well, I also had to enable the sounds inside of the Office applications, but still.
