    is there a way to make a dock icon bounce upon an event (i.e., Mail icon bouncing on receipt of a new message)? I know Adium has it as a preference, but can I make it happen manually?

    I was just looking for the same thing, but I found an answer. thought i'd drop it here for you in case you check back, or any one else is looking

    go to Mail Preferences
    click on Rules
    select "Add Rule"
    Choose a condition such as Every Message or Messages from people in my address book or whatever you like

    Choose an action, specifically, Bounce Mail Icon in Dock
