I am using Macbook pro 13inch 2015 model. Using OSX Sierra.

Every time I send a mail with the apple mail client is makes a woosh sound. In order to suppress this sound I have done the following things

  1. Go into settings -> notifications and switch off the notification sounds for mail client.

  1. Disable User Interface sound effects in settings -> sound.

However still when I send a mail it makes a stupid woooosh sound.

    Pro Tip: If you hit cmd/shift/4 for a screen shot, then tap the space bar, you can click in the window you want to screenshot & it will save with a nice little drop shadow too. Lovely for SE illustrations etc :)
