How to set up “You’ve got mail” voice when receive yahoo mail.

When i received a new mail from yahoo mail box, my yahoo messenger will voice out a typical “de” voice and display a simple dialog box as “Yahoo! Mail 1 new message(s)”

I just want my yahoo messenger to voice up a “You’ve got mail” voice whenever any new mail received. Here i show how i set it up.

1) Download a “You’ve got mail” voice

please visit following site, it’s contains different type of “You’ve got mail” voice.

2) Open Yahoo Messenger , click Messenger –> Preferences

3) Under “Category” – Click Alerts & Sounds

4) Check Enable alert sounds, Under Alert me when :, choose I received a message in Yahoo! Mail

5) Check Playing a sound, click browse to select a “You’ve got mail’ .wav voice file

6) Apply , Done

Now, wherever i received a new mail from yahoo, my yahoo messenger will voice out a “You’ve got mail” voice. I like this sound effect :)
