    Have Windows XP SP2, Outlook Express 6

    Quite some time ago my Outlook Express stopped playing the chiming sort of a sound as it used to when a new e-mail arrived or when I opened e-mail and it finished loading the mail into my "In Box."

    Can live without it, but it would be nice to get it working again.

    Any ideas??

    Maybe this setting got changed somehow.

    In OE tools>options and under "Send/receive messages" Is "Play sounds when new messages arrive" checked?
