    Email Alerts

    Anyone find a way to setup custom email alerts for certain senders? For my example, I want to make a loud and vibrating alert for when I get message from my network monitoring system at work - server down, etc - while keeping normal emails at a mild subdued alert to not be obnoxious.

    I'd love to try to do it without replacing the whole email application if possible.

    Thanks
    Jim

    Looks like a cool app, but does not support Email alerts service... Just about everything else.. but not email.

    You could set up a filter on your email account, when those alerts come in, go to a different email account.

    Set up custom alerts (like a loud ringtone) on those other email accounts?

    I like how you can set different ringtones, vibrate, etc. on a per email account basis.

    I you have Audacity and can make your own ringtones. Put them in a folder named "Notifications" and you will be able to select them my file name in the email account's settings.

    Right. There's plenty of ways to make or aquire ringtones, but that doesn't answer the question of how to make the system play a different one for different contacts or other filtering criteria.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding what your asking:
    1. Go to contacts and pick a person you want to direct a ringtone to and touch thier name in the middle "not the phone or it will try to call"
    2. Now you can see all thier stats... email address, phone number etc.
    3. hit menu at the bottom and go to options
    4. highlight ringtone "it will prob be assigned to default right now" and browse to the one you want and highlight it and then hit ok at the lower left and it will be assigned to your contact.

    I didn't think ki worded my question in a confusing manner - but maybe I did. I'm looking for a different notification tone when I get an email from person a, person b, etc.
