Double sound for incoming mail.

Reported by Jim Graham | March 13th, 2012 @ 04:14 PM

I am now getting two sound effects when a new mail arrives. The one I set in the preferences and another. Any ideas on what I mucked up?

    Check your settings in the Counters preferences pane (⌘,). You can
    have 4 counters each with each own sound. Maybe you have configured
    sounds for more than 1 counter?

    Another explanation can be that MailMate plays the “new mail” sound
    for each account synchronized. The main reason for this is that it is a
    consequence of the internal design of MailMate. (I haven't yet decided
    how to change/improve this.)

    I didn't understand the square in preference pane as 4 counters. Instead I thought it was where the (1) counter was going to appear on the screen. Now that I get it I have fixed my problem. Thanks again.

    It's simply bad UI design. (Originally it was only intended as a temporary solution.)
