    Default Add Sound to Filters

    Like Eudora, you can add sound bytes in .wav or .mp3 to trigger when a message come in fitting a certain criteria on your filters.

    For instance if you get a "new sale" notification in your new sale folder, then it can play a "cha-ching" .wav

    Thanks for the note. I'm sure this would need to be selectable per user since some folks won't want any sounds.

    How can this be done? Adding a sound to a filter?

    This isn't currently possible. Unlike Eudora that filtered email on the local client when you opened it, Zimbra does its filtering on the server at a time when the message is received and when you may not be at a computer or have Zimbra open. It's conceivable that someone could create a zimlet that would play sounds for those occasions when you do have the client open and receive a message that's filtered, but it's not on the likely roadmap for internal development.

    Well, thanks anyway for the response. I had really hoped to move away from MS outlook, but frankly I found Thunderbird to be clumsy and way overhyped. One if it's strong points is supposed to be the available addons and extensions, but I found that many of them weren't compatible with the last version of TBird, So gave up on that. Really do like much about Zimbra, but because of the rather large number of email addresses I use for different purposes and the fairly large volume of legitimate email messages, I rely quite a lot on the sounds notifying me instantly of particularly time-sensitive messages. So I guess it's "well, I tried" but back to Outlook. I will keep my eye on Zimbra, because I think it's a great client!
