Since the Friday Five is still Friday "fried" this week, I thought I'd share a little email fun with you. Here are some links to sounds that can be used when "you've got mail". Of course there are hundreds more at the You've Got Mail! Sounds Archive, but these are a couple that made me laugh. (Click to listen)
"Did you bring me a monkey?"
West Indian Man: "You are having new mail…."
"Great Googly Moogly!"
The Original AOL "You've Got Mail!"
Clueless (Movie): "Whatever"
American Pie (Movie): "This one time at band camp"
Austin Powers (Movie): "Yeah, baby"
BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD: Beavis: "Bunghooooliooooioooo!"
If you want to save one and use it for your default "new mail" sound, here a quick rundown. Right click on the link and select "Save target as". Save the file where you can easily locate it. In Windows, access your Control Panel and select SOUNDS. We're basically modifying the sound scheme (select that if your in XP) and then scroll down the list to find your "NEW MAIL NOTIFICATION". Select browse and then browse to the location where you downloaded the file. Click OK. Test it and ta-da.
