    Hi there,

    Looking for a way to change the sound notification that occurs when a new email arrives.  Any idea?

    Thanks

    Hi thedusen,

    Thank you for your interest in GmailAssistant. The following steps describe one possible way of changing the sound notifications:

    How to change audio notifications in GmailAssistant (or possibly other Java programs) without recompiling:

    1. Open GmailAssistant.jar with a file archiver capable of handling JAR files (7-Zip is recommended).

    2. Navigate to

    GmailAssistant.jar\org\freeshell\zs\gmailassistant\resources\
    

    . You should find 2 wav files in this folder, namely "bells_call_2.wav" (the chime) and "desk_bell.wav" (the periodic bell).

    3. Simply replace the above wav files with your own. In 7-Zip, you would just select the existing wav file to be replaced, click the Delete button, and then drag-and-drop the new replacement wav file (with the same name) into the folder.
