Has ANYONE found a fix for this? Same issue, here. Started about a month ago. Late 2010 MBP, i7 2.66ghz, 8gb ram, 10.7.2.

I have the same symptoms with a 2011 iMac and my Senheiser Bluetooth headphones.
10.7.3 did not correct this bug.
I'm also using MS Messenger and notification sounds are also buffered until the headphones are switched on.
I found other threads dealing with this bug :
I'm currently trying the tip given in the last discussion :
"Success - in the Audio Midi Setup (Applications/Utilities) I changed the output to 2ch - 32bit Float and all the audio works well."
My headphones already had this setting, but internal speakers had 2ch - 24bit... is it a possible explanation ? Time will tell ...

So far so good. The workaround mentioned in my previous post seems to do the trick for me until now.

I spoke too quickly...
The problem remains.

I have this bug too. Restarting mail.app suppresses the issue.

Mountain Lion doesn't fix the issue .
Restarting Mail.app works well as indicated above by Luke.

Same here on my New retina Display MacBook Pro running mountian lion, upgraded from lion. with my old MacBook Pro I was able to replicate it while the head phones are plugged in and then removed it would play the sound from my internal speakers. Basically, it was a change in audio device, it would play it in the new device. I have to take this to apple for a possible screen "ghosting" problem, as well as posible video card problem and will check with them about this issue.

Me too. MacBook Air (late 2010), OSX 10.8 (12A269). Every time I plug in headphones I get a flurry of mail sent and recieved sounds.

Same issue on a 13-inch, Mid 2011 Macbook Air running Mountain Lion. Very annoying!

I've noticed this a couple times and just realized what was happening. MBA 2012 10.8.4
Interesting experience. A little like seeing your life flash before your "ears"?
