If you do not like the existing sound, you can change the new email notification sound on Windows 10 using this step-by-step tutorial. It is possible to set existing or custom audio as the new email notification sound on Windows 10.
If you use the in-built Mail app and you receive an email, it plays a sound to notify you as your phone does. By default, it uses a sound that you might not like as it plays only for a second, which is easy to be unnoticed while watching a movie or YouTube video. You might like to use your custom sound when you receive a new email.
You do not have to install third-party software as Windows 10 has an in-built option to get the job done, for your information. The only important thing is that the sound changed when you change the theme.
