    Yes, But what are the steps to overwriting the sound file. I deleted the alert and notify and adding my new .wav file is that how to do. I restarted and it doesn't make any sound now. I am using ZD 7.1.2 build 10978.

    I can only guess that you need to make sure the new .wav file has an identical path/name as the old one. Then I would suggest you stop the desktop client completely and restart it. It's been a long time since I've used Zimbra Desktop, so although I believe there's a way to restart ZD within the program itself, the only method I can say will absolutely work is to restart Windows.

    I checked the file path/name and the only thing that is diffrent is zimbra's file is alert.wav and my file is alert.WAV. Is there a way to change my file to .wav? Thanks a million for any help!

    It's fairly likely that the capitalization does matter.

    While Windows doesn't care about capitalization, it can write it.

    Just do

    ren \path\to\alert.WAV alert.wav

    (where \path\to\ is the path to the file.)

    Then restart ZD and see what happens.

    Sorry but I am lost now. Where do I go or how do I do that. Just finding the file doesn't allow me to do that. So what am I missing.

    You would do it in a Windows command shell.

    E.g. in XP you go to the Start Menu, choose Run, and type "cmd" to get a command shell.

    You might also be able to edit the name in the Windows Explorer (GUI) itself. I assume you can, but if you've tried and couldn't, then the command line interface is another way.
