I am expecting a very important email with a time limit. I have ticked the boxes in Tools, Options that say: Play sound when new messages arrive and Check for new messages every ten minutues. I sent myself a test message but didn't get flagged. So I am having to manually check for new messages every ten minutes.
Lionheart ?, That seems to be for Outlook only, I am using Outlook Express, but thanks anyway.
Thanks, Yokel. Thought that might be the answer, but not to be I'm afraid. Did what you said. Sent myself another test email. Nothing. Only played the sound when I checked manually for new emails. Doesn't seem to alert me when I am doing something else, like surfing the PCA Forum.
Lionheart ?. Thanks. I didn't actually download anything because it seemed to be only for Outlook. Have now downloaded something called Poppy for windows. I now have an envelope in my system tray. But I have sent myself another email and still nothing happens to alert me to new emails. Would you like to send me a test email via the envelope? Thanks.
GroupFC, Don't worry, done the same thing myself many times. But yes and yes to your post. I changed it from the default 30 minutes to 10 minutes. I really need to respond to this email as soon as I get it, because of the deadline, so I am checking manually every few minutes.
