New Email Notification sound no longer plays

  • I chose Opera on my tablet because it played my New Email Notification sound on my Webmail. I haven't used my tablet for a few months but when I used it today the New Email sound no longer plays. My tablet sound is OK and I can still hear YouTube sounds OK but not my New Email sound any more. It is a wav file. The only thing that is changed is that I updated Opera.

    Can anyone advise me on how to get the sound back on my New Email Notification?

  • What email notification app did you use and how did you set it up?

  • It is my Webmail - an email company on the web like Hotmail. I log into the email website to read my emails. It gives you the option to notify you when you get a new email so it is not an additional app I need to use to do this. It is just an ordinary option that you can choose which plays a wav file when you receive a new message. I tried playing a random wav file on Google and it played OK. But for some unknown reason the New Email sound no longer plays with Opera even though it did before. I really need it to work and that's why I chose Opera for my browser because the New Email sound DID work before but now it doesn't.
