You've Got Mail

This phrase and other familiar phrases spoken by your computer including 'Welcome', 'File’s done' and 'Goodbye' were voiced by Elwood Edwards. He said his wife worked for a company called Quantum Computer Services that became AOL and she volunteered his voice in 1989 to the then future CEO, Steve Case. He recorded the words on a cassette deck in his living room. The familiar voice made it into a movie of the same name and continues, even though Edwards has been retired for a few years.
