Windows 10: No Sound From Mail

    No Sound From Mail

    I'm using Windows 10 Mail app.
    I have the "Play sound" on buy I get no sound when mail arrives.
    In fact I have everything turned on in Mail's Notification settings.
    I have also assigned an event sound to Desktop Mail Notification and New Mail Notification.

    Any ideas?

    Hi JamesJoey

    Are you getting any system sounds?

    Right click on speaker in Systray, lower right corner, then click on Volume Mixer. Sometimes on slider will be set a zero.

    I failed to mention that the other sound events I've set are working.

    Well so much for that idea.

    Have you tried setting Sound Notifications to off, reboot and then enabling. (just to see if it is "Stuck")

    Have you seen this thread?
