Outlook 2007 provides a little corner popup with an audio warning. However if there is a short period where after receiving an email the popup will occur, but the audio will not upon new emails.

From looking at the alert options, I don't see this "feature." Is there any way to turn it off?

Edit:: So I would want to hear a sound ever time an email is received.

So, you want to hear the sound every time the popup appears, right? – eleven81 Nov 2 '09 at 22:08
Or you don't, right? – Xavierjazz Nov 2 '09 at 23:27
Yes, I would like to hear a sound whenever I receive an email. – he_the_great Nov 5 '09 at 17:51
I think you should change the title - how to play a sound every time I receive an email – Nicu Zecheru Nov 30 '09 at 16:32

Did you try to add a rule for all incoming emails to play a sound?

Play a sound

But that has a restriction on Who and where it is going to be placed. And I bet Outlook's silence feature will still override it. – he_the_great Dec 11 '09 at 22:48
That was just an example. You can check the play a sound option only. Apply this rule after the message arrives and play a sound" – Nicu Zecheru Dec 13 '09 at 15:41
