I'm using FC4 with Evolution 2.2.

I set up Evolution to play sound as notification via 'Edit -> Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> New Mail Notification -> Play sound file when new mail arrives'. The sound file is a .wav file that cannot be played by Music Player (rhythmbox 0.8 indeed), but played well in Realplayer, xine.

My sound card is configured well by the system, i.e. system events sound works.

It seems no one here uses Evolution, doesn't it? Then what mail client you're using?

I use Thunderbird, but I do not want it to make a sound when email arrives so I do not know if it works there either. I have used Evolution previously, but for me it is an overkill. Thunderbird has enough features for my my purposes.
