Ah, yes, forgot to mention that as well. I had the same problem with Sierra turning on UI sound effects, and I quickly turned them off. Not sure why, but I had also set the volume slide for "blow" to zero (and that one keeps going in Mailmate), whereas I hadn't done that to "glass" (which had stopped after some fiddling around).

Three separate UIs for turning off sound notifications, bleh -- feels like Windows back when dinosaurs roamed the earth.


But thank you for the tip -- it feels like a hack, but it worked. 👍

Cheers,

FWIW I was running with all alert sounds switched off in System Preferences, and the upgrade to Sierra switched them back on.

To restore my pre-upgrade settings, System Preferences -> Sound -> Sound Effects, then

* move the Alert volume slider completely to the left
* uncheck "Play user interface sound effects"

With the update to "macOS" 😐 Sierra, Mailmate (v 1.9.5 - 5263 and then 5268) has started giving sound notifications -- first "glass" and then "blow," I think. I've turned them off in two places:

* System Prefs > Notifications > Mailmate (alert style - none, and all checkboxes unchecked), and * Mailmate prefs > Counters > Sound pulldown -- x4, one for each corner, all are set to "none"

(In passing, that counter UI might be for confusing for users who are new and/or less willing/able to put the time in -- but I digress.)

I've also restarted Mailmate, rebooted, etc but my preference don't seem to stick completely -- "glass" (or whatever) has gone away but "blow" remains," even for messages that are set to mark as "read when I filter them.

Any suggestions about how to make it stop would be warmly welcome. Thanks!

Cheers,
