GENERAL AOL ANNOYANCES

I DON'T CARE IF I'VE GOT MAIL!

The Annoyance:

If I hear AOL's chirpy "You've Got Mail!" message one more time, I will pound my computer speakers into oblivion. How can I turn off this "Up with People" greeting?

The Fix:

You're not alone in this desire, and fortunately the fix is simple. In AOL 9.0, sign in and select Settings on the AOL toolbar. Click the By Category tab and choose the A-Z tab. Then click N-S, select Sounds, and uncheck the "Enable AOL sounds such as the Welcome greeting and Instant Message chimes" box (Figure 6-1). Click Save, and the voice will disappear. In AOL 8, select Settings → Preferences, click the Toolbar & Sound link, and uncheck the "Enable AOL sounds" box.
