Thanks for your input and look forward to further.  To answer your

I'm running KDE, btw but running Evolution under Gnome or XFCE doesn't
result in any sound upon email arrival either.

Yes, sound works elsewhere, though I don't have any sound set up to work
as I click around on the desktop or throughout apps I'm running, I do
have libflashplayer.so installed so I can watch and listen to stuff from
Hulu, etc..
