Outlook 2007 - No Sound

  User-312386 08:27 12 Jul 2008

Hi all

I have just started using outlook 2007 and i dont get any sound at all when receiving mail or RSS feeds.

I have tried everything.

I have tried Tools>Options>Other>Advanced and then ticking the box that says Provide feedback with sound.

Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

No problem

Anyone else got any idea?

I will try anything

You haven't set your computr sound to Mute by any chance? are you still able to play sound in other applications?

In your first post and mine, when I look closer we are talking about two different settings.
One for "Play Sound" Mine, and one for "Feeds" yours.
Are both of the two options ticked?

Tools>Rules and Alerts>Manage Alerts>New Alert>Type in the web address of the RSS feed
For Mail, there is only a sound when mail goes to your Inbox. If you have Rules set up then Change Rule in Tools>Rules and Alerts and select play a sound.

Hi guys

Thanks for suggestions, they all look good

Some of my feeds have been messed up.

However, still no sound for outlook itself with e-mail

Ok i have found the problem

With RSS feeds you can not create an alert if you use a hotmail account. I therefore created a pop3 account and now can create sounds and rules within feeds

Much appreciated for all your help
