Different mail notification sounds for each folder

It could be really cool if it was possible to have a different mail notification 
sound for each folder, so that when I get mail that gets filtered into my 
Junk/Spam folder I'm gonna hear a sound of a wc flusing and when mail comes into 
my Mozilla folder I'm hearing a other sound...
Or maybe making sound a filter action would be another way to do that. Moving 
onto the help wanted list.

When someone will implement that, implement #11040 too.
I'd also be glad at least to be able to change the notification sound for new
mails. If you're working at your machine you don't link the sound to new mails
but to some other (perhaps windows related) issues. ;-)

would be a great enhancement.
See also bug 118952, which is about filters rather than folders, and is/has-been
I wish there is an option to disable sound for chosen folders.

I'm voting for this bug, because I'd like this feature to be included in Thunderbird itself, but I just wanted to let people know that there's an add-on that recently appeared (at least, I've never seen it before) that serves the same purpose at
