Notification sound for folders in Outlook

Copper Contributor

I would like to the ability to customize the notification sound for different folders in Outlook.

I have created a rule to move some important emails to a specific folder, but I do not get any sound alert when they arrive. I only get the default sound alert when emails go to the inbox. This makes me miss some urgent messages that are filtered by the rule.


I think it would be very useful to be able to choose a different sound for each folder, or at least have a separate sound for the rule-based folders. This way, I can easily distinguish between the emails that need my immediate attention and the ones that can wait. I hope this feature can be added in the future updates of Outlook.

Thank you.

I don't believe this is possible. You will have to look for a custom add-in, or perhaps a macro that can do this.
