new mail sound
It is very frustrating that you can customize the sound for Welcome, You've Got Mail, and Goodbye but not for More Mail. In previous versions of AOL, I would assign the "You've Got Mail" sound to the "More Mail" command via Control Panel/Sound in Windows because you could barely hear the little CLICK sound it makes when you receive mail while logged into AOL. The AOL sounds no longer appear here and cannot be altered. So now we are stuck with the inaudible default click. Since these AOL software sounds no longer appear in Windows, would you please allow this sound to be changed within the software via Edit/General Settings/Personalization? It would be extremely helpful when I am expecting important mail since this notification method is much more audible. Thank you for your consideration.
Take a look at your mail settings , I still have mine set so when any mail comes in while I'm on the computer or in the kitchen I can hear it say "YOU'VE GOT MAIL" I turn the volume up loud if I leave the room when using my laptop if waiting for an important email to arrive. The option is still there.
Go to mail setting New Mail – Select the sound you want played when new email arrives.
• Inbox Style – Select what type of inbox you want.
• Mail Away Message – Create and enable away messages

100% agree. A barely audible "click" is no way attention getting when a new email arrives.
