    Is there a way to set a different ringtone when I receive a message from a particular address. I have 4 Gmail accounts attached to my phone and if i want one to make a different sound than the other, is that possible?

    I only belive you can do 1 email notification... and thats through settings in gmail. Sorry for not being much help. I looked.

    Wow, 4 gmail accounts.

    I think it would be one notification, unless you get 3 other separate email apps.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking...maybe he could sneak an account on the other email app, but that would only be two, and im not even sure if you can put gmail accounts on the "email" app.

    No idea , but that seems to be his only solution. 4 different email apps.

    I only use gmail and yahoo, so i got those two covered by specific apps themselves already, never tried anything like K9.

    OP would need an app that supports multiple accounts, notifications per account and gmail. K9 might cover all this but I'm not familiar with it.

    google apps

    All my companies use Google Apps, so it's all gmail. They sync nicely with my phone which is why I do it that way.

    I see if you go to settings you can select a ringtone, but I can't figure out how to get a custom ringtone into the possible choices for email alerts. Any idea how?
