Windows 7: Is there anyway to play sounds on one pc but have it played on anothe

Is there anyway to play sounds on one pc but have it played on anothe

Good morning all.

I have MSoutlook 2010 on my Vaio which I access remotely via RealVNC in another part of the house which works absolutely fine. However what I would like is when that windows 7 machine plays a sound notifying that new mail has just come in, I would like that sound, or all sounds from that laptop, to actually be played into or on my second (main) windows 7 pc, which is on another floor in the house, through it's own soundcard.

So to summarise, how can you stream all sound from one pc to another. I am willing to consider any ideas.

I was not sure whether(?) to place my request here, or under the Sound issues forum. Apologies if I've submitted this in the wrong place.

Thank you for looking.
