Thanks for the debug variable, which confirms that the scripts actually

Yup, no sound plays even when configured in Preferences. FWIW, I have an
external audio interface installed in addition to the Mac System Audio,
however, System Audio is configured to go through the internal speakers.
One additional detail: when selecting the sound in the Preferences
dialog, it plays, but when new mail arrives there is only silence.
Anyway, the sounds in themselves are not important, I only wanted to
make sure that the script was triggering.

Thanks for looking into this, it is much appreciated. I have to say I am
very happy that I found MailMate, it is an excellent mail client. I was
thinking about moving to a terminal based client (mutt), but MailMate
fills my needs, and lets me stay in the regular OSX environment.

Glad to hear it!
