    Hello
    I had IE7 and the OWA feature:
    play notification sound when new mail arrives - works ok
    show popup alert when new mail arrives - works ok

    Now with IE8 i cannot hear the notification wav.
    With IE8:
    play notification sound when new mail arrives - not working
    show popup alert when new mail arrives - works ok

    I downgraded to IE7 and it worked again both features.

    Then back to IE8, and got again the sound issue.

    Any explanation/solution?
    Any one with same problem?


    Thanks

    I haven't try reminder pop-up yet, I'll do it later.

    let me know.

    Thanks

    I have just done some testing for the sound issue.
    I have confirmed this is an issue with site security in IE8 that was either
    not available in IE7 or not enabled by default.

    I will provide an update once I have confirmed the exact setting, as I set
    all settings to Enable under Trusted Sites, and this enabled me to hear the
    alert.

    Have a great day,

    I have confirmed that the setting is:
    - Display video and animation on a webpage that does not use external media
    player.
    This key needs to be set to Enable for sounds to work in OWA.

    This needs to be set in the security zone that is associated with your OWA
    access.
