Thread: Sound alert for mail.app

  1. #1
    Default Sound alert for mail.app
    Mail.app plays a sound through the headphones when you recieve new mail. I wanted to know if anyone can think of a way to get the sound to play through whatever speaker plays the alarm sound for the alarm clock. I imagine this is possible but can't figure out how to do it. If anyone has any ideas I think it'd be cool to have audible sounds for new mail alerts that don't require head phones. Thanks.

    I'm not 100% sure, but i believe that the 'speaker' you're referring to, is actually a piezo... It only makes a few types of noises, most of them just clicks...
    So i doubt it could do much to notify you of new mail, except maybe click a few times...

    Could someone confirm this?

    Clicks is fine too. As long as I could use one of the sounds that it can output as an alarm as an alert for my emails that would be great.

    Although I would love a audible notification from Mail.app (even a click, like when you type), you should check out "taskbar notification" on Installer.app, it puts a little envelope icon on your status bar that can be seen from any screen when you receive mail
