Silent Mail Syndrome

Both of my Macs have developed Silent Mail Syndrome. New messages arrive without making a noise. When I send a message, there is no whooshing sound. WTF?

1. I suffer from the silent boot up syndrome

Hard drive crashed. An apple genius fixed it. It has never bonged since.

2. Have you tried resetting your alert sounds ... or checking if 'mute' has been pressed?

Sent mail sound is called 'swoosh;' new mail alert I believe is 'ding.' (I have mine all reset to custom sounds.)

3. I don't know where to find any of that stuff.

And another thing: when I click on the envelope icon to check for new messages, there should be a brief tone if there are no new messages. That sound has also disappeared.

Perhaps I should mention that the Silent Mail Syndrome on one of my Macs started when I downloaded the newest version of "Mountain Lion", OS X 10.8.1.
