    I can't help you if Customize is working improporly, but ...

    SSH into your phone with Cyberduck or Fugu or the like and navigate to /System/Library/Audio/UISounds

    These are the system sounds. You can replace these sounds with custom sounds if you want. Just take AIFF audio files and rename then *.caf with their respective names, the mail's name slips my mind at this time, you'll see it, it's probably mailreceived.caf or something like that. Just make a backup of the old one so you can go back and change it back if you want.

    When you make the change, you won't even need to restart your iPhone.

    Sync your phone.

    Its a downloaded version not the real thing. I had the real one and got wiped of my phone when i was syncing on another machine. Contacted Apple and they said they cant help me.

    So i thought i jailbreak the phone and get it added. I just tried adding it to itunes and syncing and i get Error 0xe8000001).

    These sounds are in ---- > System/Library/Audio/UISounds/

    You will see a .caf file in there called new-mail.caf. You need to replace this .caf file with your own .caf file. In order for you to get your .mp3 to a .caf file, you will need to do a little conversion.

    Renaming alone will not do it with an MP3. conversion is necessary.

    CAF is a renamed AIFF file (*.aif). AIFF is an uncompressed file (like a .WAV file).

    iTunes can convert any file imported into an AIFF if you go into preferences/general/importing and select the AIFF encoder. Then just rename the file to the proper *.caf file you want to replace and SSH it to the phone.

    You can replace SMS sounds, e-mail sound, voice mail sounds, dialer sounds, etc.

    Make sure you save a back up of the original.

    Respring or reboot.

    Restart your phone, the phone loads the tones into memory on start up

    It's a sound file, when iTunes get's done with it, it will be an .aif file.

    Drag it to the desktop, change .aif to .caf, then SSH it into UISounds folder.
