To turn on or turn of audible email notifications in Outlook 2007:

1) Click on “Tools” in the menu”

2) Click on “Options”

3) Make sure you are on the “Preferences” tab

4) Click on “E-mail Options…”

6) About 1/3 of the way down the “Advanced E-mail Options” windows, there is a section called “When new items arrive in my Inbox”.  Check (or uncheck) “Play a sound”

7) Click “OK” three times to close all the windows

‘till next time!
