    I have mail configured to ding (glass) when a new message is received. I have Mail assigned to one space, and if I am working in any of the 3 other spaces, it won't ding. The icon shows the red circle, but I want the ding!
    Any suggestions? :confused:

    I've read that this may be a bug with either Mail or Spaces. I'm not sure, since I just use Gmail and the Gmail notifier.

    Might want to take a look at this Apple Support thread and then read down. The topic is about Mail not having any sound, but I linked you to the user who has the problem with Spaces.

    Thanks for the link. Maybe the anticipated update will fix it.

    In the meantime, you can try using Growl and the Mail plugin for it, and set the Growl message to play the ding... Altho I hear it has had some problems in leopard which may or may not have been fixed yet...:p

    But its worth a try!:D
