Default Thunderbird new mail sound notification

Thunderbird new mail sound notification is not working.

EDIT>Preferences>General > Play a Sound

^^ This is not working. I even tried selecting a sound file manually but it still doesn't work.

Any ideas ?

The OpenBSD FAQ may help you resolve this. Have you seen the Multimedia chapter?

Problem solved. Downloaded a mp3 ringtone from the web, converted it to wav and specified the file in thunderbird. Now I can hear sound when email arrives.
