As I'm working away the tone that tells me a new message has been received will sound. When I look at the Inbox there is nothing new there. This does not happen all the time but occasionally. I have not set up a junk folder so, it can't be sending any messages there. I don't know if there is a real message or if the tone signifies something else. I've had this PC for a few months and I just don't know what to think. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Have you gone into the Sounds Control Panel to see if you have the same sound set for 2 different things?

Check and see what sound is set for New Mail Notification (e.g. Windows XP Notify.wav) and then see if the same sound used for anything else.

Nope. New FAX and new email both use the notify sound but I do not have FAX configured or in use. I'll have to listen more closely because the exclamation (whatever that is) sound is awfully close to the new email sound. Pop up blocker is pretty close, too. I'll pay more attention and let you know. Thanks for the suggestion.

Instead of listening more closely, why not change the notifications to sounds that are totally different?

In that way, there would be no "confusion" as to what is happening.

Now why didn't I think of that? I changed the Exclamation to a submarine diving klaxon. Now that should be different. Thanks for the idea.
