    27" 3.4 Ghz i7 iMac-13" C2D Macbook-OSX 10.10.2 -64Gb iPad 2-64 Gb iPhone 6+-ATV 2-14Tb of Storage
    Does any sound play or is it just that sound? Where did you put the sound file? What kind of file is it? What version of OSX are you running?

    Details help...

    When I click the sound to select it, the sound plays and i can hear it. I close it and it saves but no sound emits when receiving an email. im running on 10.6.2, it's a .wav file and its in my library under sounds, thanks in advance for all your help

    It works for me. Did you select that particular sound in system preferences/sounds/sound effects? You should see your downloaded file in the list as a custom sound.

    Assuming you are using Apple Mail, did you set the sound in Mails prefs?
