When Thunderbird is set to play a sound on new mail, and to play the system "new
mail sound", if there is no mail sound it triggers the system bell. That's not
what I want to happen; if I've disabled all sounds (through the control panel)
then I expect all sounds to be disabled, not Thunderbird to be clever and find a
way around. Add an extra setting in the options dialog if you have to, but leave
the bell alone!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1: Open the Options dialog.
2: In the "General" tab, under "when new messages arive", ensure that "play a
sound" is checked and the "system new mail sound" radio button is selected.
3: Go to the Windows Control Panel and open "Sounds and Audio Devices"
4: In the "Sounds" tab, ensure that "New Mail Notification" has no sound
assigned to it by chosing "(None)" from the drop-down box. Click OK.

Once this is done, effect occurs once a new mail message arrives.
Actual Results:  
The system bell sounds.

Expected Results:  
No sound is triggered.
