    Tried searching for this but no result yet!

    Is it possible to change the "New Mail Sound" for different mailboxes? I mean one sound for my work email and another for my personal?

    Thanks.

    Kind of.

    Go to Preferences -> Rules; you can set up a Rule like this:

    If ANY of the following conditions are met:

    [ACCOUNT] [name of account]
    [Every message]

    perform the following actions:

    [Play a sound] [whatever sound you want]

    Haven't bothered to try it since i hate sounds, but you should be able to fiddle with the settings as needed if the above doesn't work as-is.

    Thanks for the reply, didn't quite do what I wanted to though. It ended up playing three different sounds every time any sort of mail was incoming, I may have set it up wrong though.
