The title says it all. I have even tried choosing a wav file in a different folder. No sound is playing upon incoming email. My PC is running Windows 8.1 64-bit. Could this be related to tying notifications to Windows? I have checked the obvious things like windows volume settings and the notification settings in eM Client. Any ideas? Thanks!
If you unselect Use system notifications , do the sounds play as normal?
Is that a setting in eM Client? Where is it found?
Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Notifications.
Is that only for Windows 10? I am running Win 8.1 and I do not have that option.
Not sure SysWiz. Don’t have a copy of Windows 8 available.
All I can think of is to make sure that the speaker icon next to Incoming mail does not have a red x.
There is no sound notification for 7.2.33785.0 and higher. At 7.1.33101.0 there is a sound notification.
Windows 7 x64
Upgrade to the latest version available at http://www.emclient.com/release-history and see if there is any difference.
If not, can you please provide a screenshot of Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Notifications.
At 7.2.33988.0, the sound notification does not work.
The settings menu does not vary from 7.1.33101.0.
The settings do vary between Windows 7 and Windows 10. It is possible that with the introduction of Windows 10 notification integration in 7.2.x, something is broken when installed on older Windows versions.
If you have a Pro License, please open a support ticket with eM Client.
If I turn on “Use system notifications”, incoming mail will cause the Windows 10 notification chime to sound as it displays the Windows 10 notification pop-up.
However, the “Incoming mail” sound notification does not work properly when running Windows 10, with eM Client Pro version 7.2.33988.0, with “Use system notifications” turned off, and with a custom sound file. My custom sound file used to work properly when I was on version 7.1.33101.0 and I would like it to do so with this new update.
I can confirm that on Windows 10 with eM Client 7.2.33988, there is no sound notification when use of system notification is turned off. When I tested this, it failed on both the default sound file and a custom one.
I have opened a support ticket with eM Client.
I have the same issue with 7.2.33988 on window 10.
7.2.33997.0 solves the problem
Thanks for that David. I can confirm it is now resolved on Windows 10.
And if this problem appears in the Mac version ? (this is my case in the version mac 7.2.34030.0) Thank you.
