    I installed Yahoo IM a few days ago - at the request of a freind and inadertantly got a few extras.

    How do I turn off that infernal splat that announces each peice of e:mail?

    I am an SBC Yahoo customer (phone and DSL) but do not use their web browser or thier mail interface.

    TIA

    go to login ( on the Yahoo instant messenger )and then to preferences and to sounds. You can change your sound from there or uncheck it for no sound.

    Nope that's not the one I'm talking about. This announces e:mail that arrives at my yahoo Mail! Which I have forwarded to my inbox in Outlook. So I suspect the sound turn off is on the Yahoo Mail! site, but I can't for the life of me find it.

    Try this....

    Open your Yahoo Messenger, click on "Preferences", then "Alerts and Sounds", then hi lite "I receive a mail message"

    From there you can disable the visual and audible alerts
