1. Above your mailbox, in the upper right, click Options and then click Mail Settings.

2. In the left panel, click General.

3. In the "New Mail" section, click the box next to Play a sound when new mail arrives so there's a check mark next to it.

All done! Now you'll know the moment a new message arrives. Yay!
