Check your PopTray settings. Look on the OPTIONS-DEFAULTS page for the main default sound, you can test it from there if listed to see if you can hear it. You also have a sound that you can define for mail found in the account in case you want a different sound for each account.

Also make sure you haven't muted your sound.

Found out why you lose sound

I found out why you lose sound in the new beta version. If you set rules to mark spam, you seem to lose any sound or popups notifying you have mail.

Anyone else discovered this, and is there a way around this problem because whenever I get my mail to mark it's spam then I lose all popups and sound. Yet I can get it to delete spam off the server, and when good mail comes through have sound.

That isn't what I'm seeing. The only time I don't get notified is if there is a rule with the 'Ignore' action set, then there isn't sound or popups. All other times mine works fine.

I don't have it set to ignore, but don't know what's going on because when I turned my computer on today. It announced I had email and all where marked as spam. Seems I think marking spam and having it set to ignore seems to do the same thing by no popups, and no sound. Just had another email come through marked as spam and no popups, or sound. Just a flashing icon and light, and yet this morning had about 50 spam and announced I had email with them all marked as spam.

Hallo,
Ich benutze PopTray nun schon geraume Zeit und bin von der Funktionalität begeistert.
Jetzt habe ich mal die 3.1 Beta8 ausprobiert. Dabei ist mit das Problem mit dem Sound aufgefallen:
Wenn ich eine Regel nur mit Saund hinterlege, wird dieser abgespielt, ist diese Regel jedoch mit einer anderen Funktion, z.b. löschen vom Server, verbunden, wird der Sound nicht abgespielt. In der Protokolldatei erscheinen aber beide Aktionen.

HansG has difficulties with sounds in rules in beta8.
A rule that only contains "play sound" works fine, but when a rule contains both "play sound" and "delete from server" (for example) the sound is not played.
In the ini file both rule actions are present.

Any ideas ?
