Different notifications tones for each email account

Hi everyone.

I recently purchased the Droid 3 and I haven't really had time to explore it. One thing I like about the Droid 1 is that I could have different notification tones for each email account, that way I wouldn't have to unlock my phone in order to know which account had a new email. I tried to do this with my accounts once I set them up in my Droid 3, but every time I changed the notification tone on one of the accounts it would do that to all the other ones. Does anyone know how to change the ringtone on each account so that there is a different tone for every account? Is it because they are all Hotmail accounts?

This is what I have tried:

Enter Messaging app>select one of my accounts>press menu key>email settings>Notifications>Select ringtone>

But it changes every account to the same ringtone.

Anybody know what to do?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.
I know you change the notification sound of gmail within the gmail settings.
