It is not terribly difficult, generally.  Have a look at the emacswiki
page for w3 and, after getting the source, have a look at the README or
INSTALL file.  After you have done this, if you still have problems come
back with them.

Every variable can be discovered via custom or in the customizations
section of the emacspeak info manual.

I would start with the emacspeak info manual.  After that you might want
to have a look at the emacswiki.  There is a section there devoted to
mail which links to other sections pertaining to particular mail
packages.

I *think* aplay is necessary for sounds but it is, I believe, installed
by default on most Linux systems.
