    I am getting an Incredible 2 through work, I regularly go into an industrial plant so I need a good case/pouch with belt clip that will protect the phone in case of a random "bump" on equipment. Also I am wondering, I have programs that send data to my e-mail including temperature warnings etc when say the A/C goes out in my server room. Is there a way to have a different sound alert when one of those e-mails comes in? IE normally you get a "ding" but when you get an e-mail from the warning software is instead screams "DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER!!" kinda like when you set different ring tones depending on who's calling

    Thanks for any and all advise!dancedroid

    You can get the Active case from Seidio. Link below. They have the case and the holster.
    seidioonline.com

    Also, for some more rugged protection, you can get the Otterbox Defender series.
    Incredible 2 Cases, Incredible 2 Defender Series // OtterBox.com

    As for alarms, I haven't seen a seperate notification for various emails in the same account.

    In the notification settings in each app (messages, emails, etc) you can customize which sound you want for notifications in each app, including the default system notification sound. You can also put whatever sound file you want to on your sd card and use that for a notification sound.

    But I think he means that from his overall email, he wants different alerts to different emails.

    So in his main account (Madmikeee@whatever.com), he gets 5 emails. 3 of them are for emergency power outages. He wants a sound saying "Alert Alert" on those 3, yet the normal emails, stay the same.

    That is how I read the email. I don't think he can do that, unless he has those emails forwarded to another account, and then he uses a different notification for that account on the phone.

    So from his 5 emails, those 3 emails would get forwarded to Madmikeee2@whatever.com and then he'd add that account on his phone and assign a seperate ring for those.

    oh my bad, you're right - I read that wrong the first time! Yeah what you said is the only way I would think that would be possible as well. I wonder if some app like K9 or something has a feature like that built into it?

    If using gmail, there is an awesome app in the market "gmail label Notifier ". It enables you to set different sounds&vibration functions for each label. You would just need to make labels for each scenario via Google ...

    Gmail can catch pop3 emails also if I remember correctly, so you could forward those email str8t to the "oh my boss is getting sweaty" label or the "Alice is wearing a skimpy skirt" label..

    posted tomorrow using the space time continuum app on my D1...

    Gmail just got an update that allows label specific ringtones for emails. Maybe you could use that to your advantage.
    Edit: sorry didn't see the post above mine. But now gmail has it built in.
    Yep I'm on my Inc2.
