    Hello!
    I just got a Droid X and, so far, am loving it! There are a lot of settings I need to figure out, but most of it is pretty intuitive.

    The one thing I am trying to find is how to turn off the alert for new gmail. I want the alerts for text messages. Last night, I was getting emails throughout the night and I kept being woken up by "DROID". I don't want to silence the phone at night because sometimes I get emergency calls, but I really don't need to know instantly when I receive an email.

    If anyone can tell me that... I would really appreciate it!

    Well i have a droid 2 but i believe the path for the X is (Menu>settings>accounts>your main gmail>account>menu>setting>uncheck email notifications). I hope this can help out some even though its a long path.

    This link confirms the path above:
    any way to STOP constant GMAIL notifications?
