Hi Julio.

In Outlook 2010, if you go to the File menu and choose the Options link, you can navigate to the to the Mail tab on the left hand side.

About halfway down, you should see an option for Play a sound that should be checked.

After you have that box checked, you should be able to click OK at the bottom of the Window to save that setting.

If you are on Windows Vista or Windows 7, try this...

Navigate to your Start menu, and go to the Control Panel ---> Hardware and Sound ---> Sound

You should get a small Window to pop up that has tabs on it. Go to the Sound tab on the top.

Scroll down the list of Program Events until you get to New Mail Notification. If there is a sound assigned to it, it should have an icon of a speaker next to it, and you can hit Test to hear what the sound will sound like.

If there is no sound selected, or you do not hear anything with the current sound, choose the Browse button, and pick one of the sounds on your computer.

Yep, I'm on W7 and everything is configured correctly, but for some reason I get no sound. All my other sounds work fine. I just installed this program about 3.5 weeks ago??? Anyway, thanks for your help. Let me know if you can think of anything else...

I will keep it in my mind. I have Outlook as well, so if I think of anything else that might be able to help out, I will be sure to post here.

If not, hopefully someone else will see this that may be able to help out.

Good Luck!
