That is probably because you (or someone on your behalf) has set up gnome
to use the visual bell. In my SuSe 10.3, this can be configured by
clicking on the main menu, then System > Configuration > Sound, and click
on the "System Beep".
Alpine, as you can guess now, will only beep. In Web Alpine it is possible
to send a file to be played (to the browser) for new mail notification.
There is no such feature in Unix, Mac or Windows Alpine.
