Why I don't get my alert messges?

Question

No matter what site i was visiting if I got mail I would get a sound alert. Now all of a sudden I don't. When i go to my Outlook Express INBOX that's when the alert sounds, at that point I don't need an alert as I can see the new mail listed in the INBOX. Getting mail is very important to me as my family lives far away & we like to be in close contact. THANK YOU, JENNIE

P.S. I had this problem when i had Win98 , i recently upgraded to WinXP & the problem continues plus my spell checker does not work with WinXP
