no sound when new email appears (Outlook 2013)

I have Outlook 2013 (part of Office Home and Business).
I have Outlook set to play a sound when a new email appears but it never does, am I missing a checkbox someplace?

I found out that it only make a sound when a new email arrives when you have Outlook open. If you open Outlook and it receives new email, there is no sound.

Ahhh, that makes sense, like a chat with alerts. Meant to alert you when you aren't chatting

Outlook 2013 email security question
Checking a web based email (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail) with Outlook is as safe as doing it using the web browser (Firefox, etc)? I know that using the browser is safe since the connection is encrypted, but I'm unsure about Outlook. Thanks for your feedback.
