    I tried to make a ringtone I have play as my email not. sound....so I deleted the original file and renamed the new file as new-mail.caf.....well now I've lost the original and the new one doesn't seem to work.

    I can use this tone as a sms tone via bitesms but can't seem to get it working for email not. sound.

    Any suggestions anyone?? Thanks in advance.

    are you asking for someone to post the original?

    when your view the properties of the newly created new-mail.caf file is owner set to root and group set to wheel, then make sure access permission is set to read,write for user and group and world is set to read

    I'm pretty sure I had all the permissions and all other parts were set correctly.

    Here's the file I wanted to use...some of you may really like it too...it's Dr. Evil saying..."you got a fricken email" lol

    Can someone make it so this file will work...or at the very least post the original sound for incoming mail please??

    im guessing renaming an mp3 to caf is not good enough, i dont have the software to convert it but i will post the original for you

    Use iTunes to convert the mp3 to AIFF.

    If anyone wants to know how I did it....

    The problem was I didn't have my "show hidden file extensions" set to on...you go into control panel (Windows) and turn it on inside "Folder Options".....then I converted it via iTunes to an Aiff file....dragged it to my desktop and renamed it to a .caf file.

    Emailed it to myself...opened it up in iFile, brought it into System/library/audio/UI Sounds and then erased the regular "new-mail.caf" file and renamed the new caf file "new-mail.caf" powered on and off and it worked.

    If anyone wants this email alert notification of Dr. Evil saying "you got frickin mail" it's right here...it's already converted all you have to do is stick it in your UI Sounds folder and erase the original one first though and rename it to new-mail.caf...respring and you're done.
