How to get a sound alert when an email appears in yahoo webmail


With yahoo there is this notification feature where a little star appears on the edge of firefox's address bar when an email arrives in yahoo webmail. Would be nice if there was also a sound alert, like traditional email clients such as thunderbird do. But if you do not want to use such a client but only want to use webmail, how can you get a sound alert? Is there an alternative email provider that offers a sound alert in their web interface?

If Yahoo web page supports it then it would be in settings. I only see what appears to be a pop-up notification.

Consider using third party email that might support "You've got mail"

Might be a browser plug in. They have almost everything under the sun.
