Got it. Thanks for that. I saw your screen shot and attempted to 
duplicate it here with a change from what I assume is a default sound 
(SoSumi). It works fine with mail incoming to the Inbox. However will a 
change effected in the setting cause a change in the sound?

Is seems not. When I change to “Glass” break sound. The inbox sound 
does NOT change. If you want to see the screen shot (which I opened and 
closed several times to be sure it sticks) [Here’s the screen 
on a Dropbox link.

I changed the sound only as an example, to see if it works. Any idea why 
the previous Sosumi sound remain with this “Glass” selection?
