Cool E-Mail Sound Notification & I cant watch U-Tube any longer


Hi to everyone

2 days ago installed Linux 8.04 was so sick of Windows, and all the crap that went with it.
Any-Hoo

Installed Linux and all seems to be ok, however I cant seem to get a sound for my e-mail notification,

Was browsing and noticed I cant get UTUBE the page opens but the tv bit is black,

There will be more, but I haven't spent a great deal of time with it yet, however it feels very good,

Any suggestions would be appreciated, must add brand new to this, Root, Sudo,etc is all magical at the moment, and untried.

Thanx for your time
Regards
Gary

Which mail client are you running? In Thunderbird there is an add-on called "New Mail Icon". It displays an icon shaped as an envelope in the notification area of the desktop top panel and beeps whenever a new mail arrives.

You'll need to install flash.
