Internet for Beginners/Yahoo Email Sound Alert*


Hi Pat,
Thanks again for your help with my real player question !
I have a new question, I have a yahoo email account & would like to receive a sound alert or notice on my computer when I get a new message, even though I'm not on the yahoo page.
I went to the options button, clicked messenger options, checked the 'sound alert' box which says "play a sound whenever a new chet or text message is received" & saved the changes.
Yet when I sent myself a new email from a different computer, I got the message, but without the sound alert(my speakers are on).
Will you help me again ?

John, looks like your doing it right.  Don't know why it's not working.
Maybe, search on keywords: yahoo email sound alert, to see if others complain of your problem.
Got to go, power about to go out.  Pat
