Is is possible to add a sent mail notification sound in Thunderbird 3.1? I am running it on Mac OS X 10.6.4. Thank you very much.
Yes it's in "Preferences>General>When new message arrives" section: Select either System Sound or add your own selecting the "Use following sound file" and browse to an mp3 (or other file) of your choice.
Hope it helps.
Note: When setting up the notification alert in Thunderbird there will be a glitch if you use IMAP. The glitch consist in the fact that the user gets notified also on sync. That means that while you write a reply you will hear the notification each time Thunderbird will sync the file with your IMAP server to save a current draft of the email you are putting together at that moment. It also happens when you sent an email... after sending it your Sent mailbox will be synchronized receiving the update to include a copy of the mail you just sent... that will also trigger an audio alert... it'a little annoying but not a major problem. To make sure if an alert you just heard is a false positive or not, just look at in the dock and if there is no visual (red dot with number of new messages) on the icon, then you can disregard the alert as it was a false positive and can continue do whatever you were doing.
No no no!
He wants a sound strictly when he sends a message only, not syncs every last little thing in his inbox!
Try this route instead…
