Can't Disable New Email Notification Sound!
Jelly Bean 4.1 HTC One x.
I have 5 email accounts. 3 are standard mail accounts. 2 were setup as Google accounts so I can sync calendars and other stuff associated with the accounts.
All 3 regular email accounts, the Notifications setting is OFF.
I can't find a notifications toggle setting on the Google Accounts.
There is no option to disable access to the notification bar in the App Settings for the Mail App.
Maybe there is no way to disable new email notifications on Jelly Bean when using Google accounts? Tell me it isn't so! I don't use my phone to constantly read/send email. All I want is to see the unread count on the mail icon. No sounds, nothing else.
If I can't find a way to turn of the notification settings on the Google accounts, it seems what I would have to do is disable Email sync on those accounts and run a third party mail app, and just setup all 5 accounts through that (3 IMAP, and 2 POP for the two google accounts.)
