Reading http://www.worldstart.com/tips/tips.php/1232 and other places it already does this.
But there is no email software I know of that has 'distinctive ring tones.'
Okay, I'm hoping that there is a free e-mail programme that I can use with Thunderbird that will sound an audible alert when I get mail from a certain group I belong to. I'm hoping it will be something like the Auction Alert alarm that can used on E-bay (as far as sound quality). I've really no idea if something like that even exists, but I'm hoping it does, and one of you Techie Geniuses knows about it. I have Windows XP, and use Firefox (latest version)and Thunderbird. Thanks for any suggestions, or ideas about this.
