>>If you don't like Mail's alerts you can turn them off in the Preferences

Yeah, as you say, I want sounds played for other instances, like mail sent (swooooosh!). Just not every 1 minute that Mail goes looking for new messages and can't find any.

All these moments will be lost in time
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

Do a search on the interweb for an application called Play Sound. It's free and all it does is play sounds.

Then turn off all your Mail sounds and save this script to your ~/Library/scripts/Mail Scripts folder.

Make a new rule in Mail for every message to run by this script. This way you get a sound for each new message. Kind of annoying when you have 60 odd to download but at least you can hear not only when you have messages but how many you have.

So, I said ... well, I can't actually remember exactly what I said. But it was one of the most enormously cruel and frighteningly witty put downs ever.
