Hi all my windows live mail has stopped making a mail notification sound when new mail arrives can anybody help with a fixthanks allcharlieh
Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Sounds tab - scroll down to New Mail Notification and highlight it. Browse for the sound you want and click Apply and OK.
Ah I should have said I already done this and the sound plays ok when chosen in sounds tab but when a mail arrives it makes no sound ./All my audio devices are working finethanks
You can try checking the configuration of the sound via the registry:1. Go to Start - type regedit and OK2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\MailBeep\. current3. Highlight 'current' and in right-hand pane Double-click (Default), and set its value to the WAV file to play4. Click OK5. Close regeditAlways back up registry before making any changes.
thanks tryd that still not working though
Go back to the Edit String window - is the .wav file shown just as xxxxx.wav - if so try changing it to the entire path:C:\WINDOWS\Media\xxxxx.wav
okay tried that but still no sound it original said %SystemRoot%\media\Windows XP Notify.wav
Or back to basics - in WLM Tools/Options/General tab - Play Sound When New Messages Arrive should be ticked.If it is already then untick and Apply - then go back and tick and Apply and OK.
Yea ok have done that still no joy im afraid
I'm not sure about that %systemroot%Try going back to the Control Panel and Sounds tab and select a different sound for New Mail - if that works you can then go back to your original sound.
okay I tryed a different sound but still not working
