Is it possible for me to download and install a new sound set(s) to Entourage

There were changes to the way Entourage uses sounds in Entourage 2008. See
this page for help.



A user recently posted the following. I haven¹t checked it against the link.
I use custom sounds in rules rather than use the general alert sounds. See
Rule to Play Sound

========user posted steps=========
I create a folder in the Entourage sounds folder called
"sound_1.eradgesoundset", i call it sound_1 but it can be what you want. The
important thing is the .eradgesounset.

I put in this folder my sounds, for example :

No Mail.aiff
New Mail.aiff
Mail Sent.aiff
Mail Fetch Error.aiff

You can put in what you want, mp3, aiff or wav.

Then i created a file with BBedit call :


This file must be in the "sound_1.eradgesoundset" folder with yout own

This file look like this :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
<plist version="1.0">
<string>My soundset</string>
<string>Mail Fetch Error.aiff</string>
<string>Mail Sent.aiff</string>
<string>New Mail.aiff</string>
<string>No Mail.aiff</string>


the "<string></string&gt
you can put what you want here between the open strings.

the <string>My soundset</string>, can be what u want to and also nothing.

Then Open Entourage and select your new soundset in the menu.

Hope this help
