Windows 7: Outlook 2010 new mail sound

I have the latest updates running and functional (W7, MS Office). Is it possible the culprit would come from my previous Office Pro 2007 install? is there a register value that I could check and tweak?

Hi fmarionpoll

Not sure if there is any relevance, but are you using POP3 or IMAP accounts?

That appears to be the problem - IMAP.

This might help though:

Please let us know if that solves the problem for you.

Just to throw another idea into the mix

I don't rely on Outlook for email alerts but use an open source tray app to check my accounts.

this allows me to check mail on "resource challenged" systems with out the overhead of running outlook all the time

the application I use is old but works with win7 without any issues
