Default Incorrect Notification Sound

I recently removed the SD card from my phone to copy the files from it as a regular backup.
When I returned the SD Card to my phone I noticed that the notification sound that is played when the standard Android 'Mail' application receives an email has changed.
I have gone into the Settings > Sounds > Notification Sound menu and confirmed the correct sound but the Mail application continues to play a different sound. The funny thing is that this newly selected sound isn't actually even listed under my options for notification sounds.

I have tried the following solutions:
deleting the account from Mail and re creating it
Restarting the phone
Force quitting the Mail application
Removing the SD card and return it again
Unmounting and Remounting the SD Card

I think that I may have to somehow reinstall the Mail application or at worst return to factory settings (something I wish to avoid doing)

Any suggestions would be appreciated
Thanks!

Create a folder on the SD Card called notification (or notifications) and drop the file you want to use in there. It should appear in the list of sounds to select as your email notification.

I had already done that so that I could have a personalised notification.
For some reason only Mail will use this other notification sounds (the one I don't want to use) which isn't listed under my options for notification sounds.
The file that I want is on the phone and recognised. It is set as the 'Notification Sound' under Settings > Sound but Mail refuses to use it, instead seeking out an audio file from somewhere else on my SD card.

Did you mean the default 'Messaging' app? because I don't use that app.
I use GO SMS Pro and so I have disabled all the notifications from Messaging. GO SMS is set up with all the notification settings according to my liking and it works perfectly, but Mail still doesn't work.
