Turn on or turn off the new email sound in Windows Live Mail

By default, Windows Live Mail will automatically play a sound when it detects new emails and starts downloading them to your computer. This is called the "New Mail Notification" sound, and is configured at the operating system level (in other words, you customize which sounds will play by configuring your Sounds settings in Windows 7 / Vista / XP). But Windows Live Mail allows you to disable the new emails sound if you don't want it to play, without affecting your other email programs. You could want Microsoft Outlook to play the new mail notification sound, but ask Windows Live Mail to remain quiet when new emails arrive. This is possible by turning off the new mail sound option inside Windows Live Mail itself.

Turn off / disable the new mail notification sound in Windows Live Mail

Follow these steps to configure your new emails sound settings:

Turn back on / enable the new mail notification sound

If you change your mind, and decide to re-enable the new emails sound, just follow these steps, but this time check the "Play sound when new messages arrive" checkbox before clicking on the OK button to apply the change.
