10.5: Avoid Mail's 'no sound for new messages' bug
Authored by: Mr. H on Mar 06, '09 02:31:21AM

Here's another gotcha to look out for: if you've disabled "user interface sound effects" (for example, the sound that's played when you move a file to the trash in Finder is a user interface sound effect) in System Preferences, this also disables Mail's new message alert.

Now, what if you want Mail's message alert and don't want the stupid and annoying (IMHO) user interface sound effects? The solution is to enable user interface sound effects in System Preferences, and to disable the Finder's sound effects using Tinker Tool.
