    Leopard mail - what on EARTH is happening to my sounds??
    I'm getting extremely angry with Mail.app (3.2). One minute it decides it will play me the "new mail" sound, and the next it decides "stuff it - let him GUESS if he has new mail - I refuse to notify him with a sound"

    WHAT THE _____ IS GOING ON APPLE - THIS IS MAKING ME SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [PS] Oh and sometimes new mail doesn't even get marked with a blue dot - it appears as if it has been read.... WHAT IS GOING ON???.

    [PPS] I'm using gmail and IMAP - and yes, it *IS* setup correctly - I've done it again and again about 25 times!!.

    Even making a rule as a temporary fix didn't work:

    This is a known issue with Mail since Leopard was released. Unfortunately Apple did not correct the bug in the latest update 10.5.2. I'm very disappointed about this also.

    I am having the same issue, I have set my iphone to check more frequently and I get the audio alert that way....lame "fix" I know but I have to have something.

    COME ON APPLE!!!! PAY ATTENTION!!!!! The little things are always the most irritating.

    I guess that I shouldn't complain too much as I have had very few other problems......
