I would like to be able to hear some acknowledgement when I get an email. Nothing fancy just a ding. Ed

Are you using a web site to access mail or an email client like thunderbird?

thunderbird notifies me when an email arrives; i have it set up to check every 10 minutes or so.

Does Yahoo still require a paid account to use it with a mail client?

A couple methods.

Any modern browser you can click under settings (likely gear) in Yahoo web page to activiate notifications. Please note the first time it will ask for approval for this from your web browser and say yes. I believe browser has to be open for these to work.

If Windows 10 you go to Microsoft Store and download the free Yahoo Mail App (search for Yahoo mail) and this a better method. The application looks works the same inside a window but has better control of notifications.

A paid account hasn't been needed for a few years. I use Yahoo for junk mail along with Thunderbird for a email client.

If it's a Windows desktop, it's been a while, but there was a program called MailWasher that I liked back in the day, would run in the taskbar and do a little animation and use a sound file when email arrived.

I'd like to suggest a program called POP Peeper. It will display and inform you of new mail and display only the headers. It's free and pretty configurable. I've used it for years.
