    Question Can I change the defult 'beep' notification?

    I'm a new user to Zimbra Desktop, having recently set up after moving to Windows 8.

    Is there a way to change the 'beep' sound that the reminder notification gives to a different sound? I find the beep too short and indistinct if I'm away from my computer. If I can change it to something more distinct it would be very helpful.

    Thanks

    That would be something you do in Windows: +"how to" +change +"notification sound" +"windows 8" - Yahoo! Search Results

I've even changed every single sound assigned to an event to the .wav file that I want, however Zimbra still plays the same clunky beep.

    Any other suggestions?

    I have also changed the sound scheme to "no sounds" and Zimbra still 'beeps'.

    I see there are also two other threads asking similar questions; one here and the other here, the latter unanswered from 2008.

    Does this mean that it's built into Zimbra's programming code somewhere and is not possible to change?
