|Suppress the mail alert sound for each of your accounts in the Account Setup
window, then create a PlaySound script using the PlaySound script command. Place this script at the
bottom of your filters.
Since you are moving messages into mailboxes and those are the messages you want to suppress
the sound for, you can add a script to run on incoming mail, place it at the bottom of the list
to only do PlaySound command. When a message is moved, Poco will not continue processing the
message and hence won't play the sound, as long as it's disabled in Accounts Setup.
- While this technique works it does not provide a solution if you want to play sound alerts
for messages that have been processed by filters and/or scripts. For scripts it is relatively
straight forward to add the "PlaySound" command or insert a similar action in your filters, just
make sure it is above any filter action that moves the message to a different folder,
deletes it or issues the "Stop processing" action.
- The PlaySound script would look something like this:
This would play the custom sound you have defined in the Miscellaneous Program Settings.
- If, in the future, you add additional filters where you want to suppress the sound alert in the
future you will have to move those filters above the PlaySound script.
- This technique can trigger multiple sound alerts rather than the single one Poco normally plays
when new mail arrives.
