The swoosh sound no longer plays (consistently?) when I send a new email.  How do I find the setting to control it?  I believe I set it in the past but cannot find it now.  Even when I set it previously it did not play consistently.  Help appreciated.

Thanks,

Jack

    Mail -> Prefs -> General -> Be sure this is checked; maybe deselect and select again if already selected, Repair Permissions?

    You're welcome. I have never seen where or how to change the swoosh sound to something else, but only to turn all sounds on or off (except for new mail).

    This is discussion is useful.  However, the swoosh sound is missing from my new iPhone 5 (it was there at first) when I throw mail in the trash.

     

    The provided solution seems to relate to those with Apple computors.  I have a Windows XP comuputor and do not have the same illustrated page.  (Seems to be an Apple page?)

     

    Is there someone with an XP computor that can solve the problem of the "missing swoosh"?  It worked fine until my son went to the Apple store and "listened" to ringtones.

     

    Any connection?

     

    Please help those who are trying to help Apple and XP be compatible....thanks!

    If you want to change the swoosh sound to another sound right click the mail app and click show package contents.  In contents open resources and find mail sent aiff.  To change make sure new sound is aiff. file and label it mail sent then replace existing file with new file moving the original out of the contents folder first.  Save old file if you want to return to its sound.
