    Hi weezimp you are a God. I installed the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger
    UK version (10.0.0.1258-uk) and all my sounds disappeared in Outlook 2003,
    it's been driving me mad! This fixed it in an instant.

    Much Kudos to you....

    Because after 5 years an update or 2 to either Office or a newer version of
    Desktop Weather probably solved the problem close to 5 years ago.
