Question When emails come in I have no ding sound?


I have aim.com and for the last two weeks, when an email comes in I have lost the ding sound to tell me that an email has arrived. How do I get the ding sound back?

How about some information? What mail client do you use? What version/distro of Linux? Do you have sound on other programs? Has this EVER worked, and what has happened recently, that could account for this malfunction?

@jgbtrans
Please note that TB0ne is not being rude - but more information is needed.

Windows has (pretty much) one application for email (Errr "Outlook"?). Linux probably has at least 20 available, and they all work differently.

So, cough up the details, and someone will help you get the problem fixed.
