    trash sound is really horrible, please do something with it, osx trash sound is smooth and perfect but airmail one is really horible

    This needs to happen... 1. the incoming mail sound is horrible 2. I hate the trash sound. Would like to disable that and leave the incoming mail sound.

    The workaround is to create an empty wav file called trash.wav and move it to the resources folder under the app. And yes i know i could customize the incoming mail wav file as well... but doesn't last for upgrades and very much a hack

    Would love to have this ability. It would make it much easier to distinguish which app is notifying me.

    You can set up a rule that will play a sound when you receive email from an account - you can do all accounts inboxes, or you can do different sounds for different accounts. Then, you can disable the sound under the account settings that plays as default.

    This was a workaround for me that allows me to get banner notification on my work account, but all personal accounts have notifications turned off, with a custom sound rule established.

    For what it's worth, there's a workaround. Right click on the Airmail Beta app icon and select "Show Package Contents." Navigate to Contents>Resources. Inside of the Resources folder are several .wav files, which are the alert sounds. Find the audio file you want to use (it must be in .wav format), and rename it so that it has the exact same name as one of the .wav files in the Resources folder. Replace the file in the resources folder with your custom re-named file. Start up Airmail and select that sound in the settings.
