    Play a Sound for Windows 10 Mail Notification


    I have the 'Play a sound' checked in the mail app but have yet to here a sound when mail arrives.

    What sound does it play???

    Can one set the sound (.wav) in the program event sounds??

    It should play the default 'Mail Notification' sound; you can set your desired sound by clicking on Browse 3.

    I had to jump through a few hoops to make sure it worked properly:

    Set 'Play a sound' in Mail Settings:

    and set sound in the 'Sounds' Panel...
    make sure you set the sound for 'New Mail Notification' not 'Desktop Mail Notification', (or, do both)
    and make sure the Test button is not grayed out/Apply and OK...

    I'm using another email client now, but I'll keep these steps in mind.

    Thanks,
