changing mail alert message in outloo express

  johnnyrocker 00:04 26 Jan 2005

i have successfully done this using my own voice recorded via a wav file and input it to my mailwasher program, what i would like to do is do the same thing in outlook express but it only appears to have a facility to place a tick in play a sound when new mail arrives but not the ability to specify which, any help appreciated.

Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
(Make sure you are in Classic View.)
Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices.
Go to the Sounds tab.
Highlight New Mail Notification in the Program Events list.
Select a sound from the Sounds list, or use the Browse button to find a sound not in the list.
Click OK.
