- .wav49: Smaller file size (default, recommended).

To deliver notifications to a group, use an email alias (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) or create an auto-forward rule in your email client.Tip: Use a specially formatted email address provided by your cell phone carrier to send notifications via text message (SMS). Check with your carrier for more details.
