    I have no mail notification (Sound alert) when new mail arrives.
    Anyone else?

    Did you report it? I did, but it might be helpful if others that have the issue do as well.

    I've seen this reported when "Do Not Disturb" was turned on in Notifications.

    If turning "Do Not Disturb" on/off doesn't fix you might want to delete the preference file in your User's Library/Preferences folder. Log out/in after deleting THEN reset Notifications.

    com.apple.systempreferences.plist

    I can confirm that I have no new mail notification sound as well. That goes for my .mac.com account and my own email domain account.

    It's an old account that I signed up for back a long time ago when Apple had the ".mac" service. You could have email accounts like yourname@mac.com and then they switched to .me.com and now we're on .icloud.com. But if you have an old account like I do, you're still allowed to use it today, which I do.
