    Hey out there,

    Does anyone know how to get different notification sounds for different e-mail accounts? For example I have a work e-mail and a social e-mail and would like to have a different sound for each one. Right now I only get to pick a default sound which applies to both e-mails. Any help would be great! Thanks.

    since the default email client is a separate app from teh gmail client, use only work email through the default email client and all o fyour personal mail through gmail (see my sig). that way you can set each sound.

    yes, delete the other accounts. make sure you are using labeling in gmail, so you know what email is from what account.

    from each mail app, go to menu - settings and scroll down to notifications. there you can designate your choice of tone/vibrate, etc.

    one is an envelope. the other has an M with an envelope. these are both mail apps, except one is called the Default Mail app and the other the GMail Mail app. each of these have settings independent of the other.

    if you can't find it on your desktop, check the app drawer.

    you can only have sound notifications per app, not per account, not sure if I made that clear. gmail will have its own sound (social mail), default email will have its own sound (work mail).

    My name is Jeff and I really like this phone, its taken some changes for me to get the changes in technology. I stay right behind my 26 year old son. So he plays, and now I read about Droid apps and electronic deviced and gadgets.
    Anyway, this app is exactly a way i was looking to do the email situation with AOL. Thanks, Good idea. Jeff.
