    My mail icon seems to have a mind of its own. I have my dock hidden and when I get new mail sometimes the mail icon will bounce nice and high onto the screen to alert me. Other times the mail icon just sits there hidden until I'm at the edge of the screen and the dock is shown, then it bounces.

    I already made the rule for the icon to bounce when I get new mail, which it does sporadically. I just want to make it bounce into view EVERY time I get a new mail. Can someone help please?

    Thank you.

    Anyone have any idea???

    Not specifically what you're asking for, but you could install growl, which will notify you with a simple popup that fades out after a few seconds when you receive mail. Growl does tons more, but useful for what you're wanting, and out of the way other than that.

    Just search for Growl on google and here, and you'll see that it's a popular little app.
