    No it plays the lot, every time.

    Best to make a custom one as short as poss.

    Hi, would you mind explaining how you created one? I would actually like to replace my standard mail notification sound. I think I need to create some kind of .caf file? Then I need to place it in the appropriate file location? I have no idea what this is.

    The caf files go into System/Library/Audio/UISounds/

    You will see six .caf files in there called sms-received1.caf thru sms-received6.caf. You need to replace these .caf files with your own .caf files. In order for you to get your .mp3 to a .caf file, you will need to do a little conversion.

    Renaming alone will not do it with an MP3. conversion is necessary.

    CAF is a renamed AIFF file (*.aif). AIFF is an uncompressed file (like a .WAV file).

    iTunes can convert any file imported into an AIFF if you go into preferences/general/importing and select the AIFF encoder. Then just rename the file to the proper *.caf file you want to replace and SSH it to the phone.

    All the misc sounds are here

    new-mail.caf
    voicemail.caf
    sms-received1.caf thru 6

    Thank you much. I have the .caf file. Doe the 6 "sms*" files you refer to apply to the email notification? I am happy with the sms sounds and only want to change the email sound.

    Nope
    email is new-mail
    voicemail is voicemail (pretty sure, you can check it see if that is the exact name)
    all 6 sms sounds

    Hint: Back up the original sounds before overwriting them
