“new mail” sound in mac mail

January 9, 2009

If you have a new mac and you use mac mail, you will notice that “new mail” notification does not work very well. If you have growl you can then play a sound from there but it is not the cool “new mail” sound.
The workaround I did is to copy the “new mail” sound from

/Applications/Mail.app/Contents/Resources/New Mail.aiff

To

/Library/Sounds/

Then switched off the alert for new email in email preferences and went to growl and selected “new mail” for the new emails as alert.

It works
