10.5: Avoid Mail's 'no sound for new messages' bug
Authored by: AveryTimm on Dec 30, '08 03:07:22PM

I also have not heard the new mail sound since upgrading to 10.5 on my old eMac or my new iMac. I have 2 POP accounts and 3 Gmail POP accounts, but only one of the Gmail accounts checks every minute, the others check only when clicking on "Get Mail". I have never used an IMAP account. When setting up a rule along the lines of "When any message type=mail, play sound" it will beep for OUTGOING mail messages, but still will not beep for incoming mail messages. When I add the condition to have icon bounce in the dock it will do it (so the rule it working, but the beep isn't). I could probably write an AppleScript to get around this, but if someone already has a good one could you post it?
